PORTLAND, MAINE — Nov. 16, 2012 — Oakhurst Dairy, northern New England’s largest independent family-owned dairy company, has added fat free half & half cream to its line of products. The new fat-free cream has 50% fewer calories, 0 fat, and is made without artificial growth hormone.

“For 90 years our consumers have made Oakhurst the trusted brand for milk and we want to become their brand of choice for cream,” said Bill Bennett, Chairman of the Board, Oakhurst Dairy. “We are going to remind them that they have a choice when it comes to the cream they use, because there’s cream and then there’s Oakhurst. We want them to treat themselves to the quality of Oakhurst when they reach for cream for their coffee every morning.”

Bennett continued: “Our consumers told us they are extremely loyal to the type of cream they put in their coffee. Some choose light cream, some half & half, while others prefer milk. A large group told us they were looking for a great tasting, fresh cream that was lower in calories and without all the fat. So we went to work creating our new fat free half & half cream to meet that need. Our new product is now on store shelves and available in both quarts and pints. We encourage consumers to remember to reach for Oakhurst when they want to add the rich delicious flavor of cream to their coffee, or to a favorite family recipe.”

In addition to the new fat free half & half cream, Oakhurst Dairy has traditional half & half cream and several fresh, delicious cooking creams. These include: heavy cream, medium-whipping cream, light cream and sweetened whipping cream. Information on the company’s complete line of cream products can be found at:
