Where’s that milk processed?

     The New York Organic Dairy Initiative has developed a postcard to educate consumers on reading the product code on milk cartons. The code tells where the milk was processed.
      The project, called Project 36 (for New York’s processing code), is intended to help consumers find milk processed in New York on store shelves, in light of competition from milk being imported over long distances. But you can find a list of all state processing codes, as well as the postcard, at this website:
