Thank You to the Dairy Industry

on June 18, 2018

June is dairy month and all of us at ESE would like to take a moment to say, “Thank You,” to all of the hardworking dairy farmers and families out there. We thank you for your dedication to producing wholesome and safe food. Want to support our dairy farmer families? Here is a resource to help you find the nearest dairy event in your area!

ESE recognizes that without dairy farms and families we would not be in business.  We reflect on our humble roots that grew from a small electrical business to a food and beverage process automation and integration company that serves both small businesses and major corporations.

ESE has greatly expanded in our 30 years of operation. Our extensive knowledge of the dairy industry has created multiple opportunities for us to become experts in many other food and beverage industries including brewing/distilling, bakery, eggs, confections, aquaculture and many more.

And while we have grown beyond dairy, it remains an integral part of our history and our operations. Our business would not have been possible without milk and dairy products.

Don’t forget to enjoy some dairy products this month!
