Driftwood Dairy - 10 mi from Oxy, in El Monte, CA
Driftwood Dairy is based barely 10 miles from Occidental. Started in El Monte by Mike Dolan in 1946, the business was built on their family dairy legacy going back to their dairy farm in Ireland. The business started as a single cash and carry store in El Monte, and has since greatly expanded. Driftwood only uses milk from cows that are not treated with the growth hormone rBST. Additionally they have made strong commitments to ensuring fair labor practices in their supply chain. In the 70 years since Mike started the business, Driftwood Dairy has grown from a small family dairy operation to a national corporation, but they still source their milk solely from California dairies, primarily within 200 miles of their El Monte headquarters. Driftwood supplies Oxy with numerous products, from their fresh dairy products including milk, cream and yogurt to orange juice and soy milk.
