FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
October 26, 2001
We are proud to announce that Mark Davis, President & CEO of Davisco Foods Int'l, Inc. has been inducted into the Minnesota Business Hall of Fame. "I never invented anything. I just took advantage of someone else's innovation and turned it into a real process, a real product." Davisco Foods comprises five dairy/ingredient- processing plants in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Idaho. It produces about 1 million pounds of cheese per day that's generated from more than 10 million pounds of milk. It's Kraft Foods' largest supplier of cheese. And it's the world's largest manufacturer of whey protein isolates-milk components used in everything from skin cream to beverage supplements for the elderly.
Davisco, led by Mark's knowledge and instinct, has become a very prominent player in the U.S. milk - processing industry. "We always looked for the next economic hit - a home run, if you will, or at least a base hit." Mark's philosophy is, if you're right 51 percent of the time, then when life is all over, you'll have done more right than wrong."
Another Davis-owned enterprise is Cambria, manufacturer and retailer of quartz countertops, grossing annual sales of upwards of $100 million. Although Marty Davis runs Cambria, his father reads every Cambria sales-call report, every day.
