Land O’Lakes Foodservice Introduces Revolutionary Reduced Cream Base

(Press Release) ST PAUL, Minn. August 13, 2012 – Land O’Lakes Foodservice is now offering an innovative new creambased
product for Foodservice Operators: LAND O LAKES® Reduced Cream Base. Using patent-pending
technology, LAND O LAKES® Reduced Cream Base is highly resistant to burning or scorching, able to
withstand multiple heat/chill cycles and has a long hold time without separation.

LAND O LAKES® Reduced Cream Base has a longer shelf life than cream, with the added benefit of having
fewer calories and less fat. This innovative new product is perfect for foods, from Alfredo sauce to lobster
bisque, to spinach & artichoke dip, a patron favorite — setting Land O’Lakes apart in providing back-of-house
dairy solutions.

“This is a multi-purpose product that is going to make life easier and make production less expensive for many
Operators,” said Mark Petchenik, Land O’Lakes Corporate Executive Chef. “It allows them to create a range of
high-quality, made-to-order sauces and soups, while still cutting costs.”

Already reduced, Foodservice Operators can use 50 percent less LAND O LAKES® Reduced Cream Base
than heavy cream in soups, sauces and more to deliver the same rich flavor. Foodservice Operators use an
average of six gallons of cream in a two-week period, making LAND O LAKES® Reduced Cream Base an
effective way to save on time and reduce waste.
