Foremost Blue Moon has received the first place blue ribbon award for Blue Cheese at the 1969 Milwaukee State Fair. Henry Haas, manager of the local plant, reports that the first place award has been received three out of the past four years. The highlight was in 1967, when Blue Moon not only received a blue ribbon and the Governor's Sweepstake award, but also the highest score of all cheese entered at the State Fair.

Arthur Jacque, superintendent of the Dairy Plant; Lyle Christensen, quality control supervisor, and LaVerne Haas, superintendent of the Main Plant, have had the necessary fine cooperation from fellow employees to make blue ribbon cheese possible.

In November 1968, Blue Moon began purchasing Class 1, Grade A mile to provide an adequate supply of top quality milk for increased production and sales. High quality raw product delivered by our milk producers and service rendered by our truckers make the blue ribbon production easier. Grade "A" milk is purchased through the Chicago Federal Milk Market Order.
