Dairy Innovator Dialogue Dan Zagzebski Michael Dykes

Dairy Innovator Dialogues is back this October with a special, live question and answer session with our very own IDFA Executive Council Chair, and President and CEO of Great Lakes Cheese, Dan Zagzebski.

Join Zagzebski and IDFA President and CEO Michael Dykes for a 60-minute, interactive discussion on the growth of Great Lakes Cheese in Zagzebski’s 17 years with the company, how the dairy industry has responded to significant disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and how Great Lakes Cheese is building infrastructure and an empowered workforce to prepare for dairy’s bright future. Dan Zagzebski has served as the President and CEO of Great Lakes Cheese, the nation’s largest natural cheese packager, since 2015. Great Lakes Cheese is family and employee-owned by the Epprecht family and 3,300 dedicated employee-owners.

IDFA members are encouraged to attend this special session. Please send your questions for Mr. Zagzebski in advance to dairydialogues@idfa.org. IDFA will also reserve 15 minutes for audience Q&A.
