Kemps 2021 Food Service Catalog

Kemps LLC 1270 Energy Lane St. Paul, MN 55108 1-800-322-9566 © 2021 Kemps, LLC. All rights reserved. FOOD SERVICE 2021 From our beginnings as a small creamery in southeastern Minnesota, Kemps has extended its roots to include the manufacture and marketing of fresh milk, premium ice cream and frozen yogurt, frozen novelties, sour cream and cottage cheese in both retail and food service channels. Our goal in food service is to listen to our customers and respond by providing the best tasting, highest-quality products. DFA is the largest farmer-owned dairy cooperative in America, with more than 18,000 dairy farmers. We’re proud to call ourselves 100% farmer owned as we realize that naturally good fresh milk is the source of our Kemps quality products. A tradition of QUALITY As a result of FDA’s finalization of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and the past events surrounding the ice cream industry, Kemps has evaluated all food safety and quality aspects of our internal programs and are in the process of strengthening all protocols to build toward a best-in-class facility. • Kemps environmental testing program (zones 2-4) has been enhanced over the last year in terms of number of swabs completed. • We have initiated a very controlled process of zone 1 swabbing and finished product testing on a weekly basis. • In order to maintain a controlled hold process while zone 1 and finished product tests are pending, our positive release program has been expanded to roughly 96 hours in our ice cream facility. • Our definition of a lot code has been improved to narrow the amount of “in process” product that is carried between production days. • Kemps has enhanced our cleaning schedule and sanitation equipment over the past year. The schedule we maintain for sanitation requires the entire filling room to be cleaned and released for production as a full unit.
