Summary:

A non-profit corporation called “Dairy Management” – a marketing entity created by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the dairy industry – has helped boost cheese sales and consumption by working with restaurants, even as USDA data show that cheese is a substantial source of excessive saturated fat in the American diet. Contract records released under FOIA revealed Dairy Management helped Domino’s Pizza generate and test new pizza concepts.
