Amit Kleinberger, CEO of Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, had an up-close and personal encounter on a recent episode of “Undercover Boss.”
A disguised Kleinberger was sent to Scott Brothers Dairy, a 1,000-head dairy in Moreno Valley, Calif. The dairy provides milk used in Menchie’s frozen yogurt products.
Co-owner Brad Scott used the opportunity to promote not only his operation, but the entire dairy industry. His segment, though short, was a public showcase of what dairy farmers do to feed the country and world.
Kleinberger shadowed Francisco, one of the dairy’s herdsmen, and experienced many aspects of dairy farming, including delivering a calf.
“I’m pretty inspired by now,” Kleinberger said as his day on the dairy came to a close. “The world needs more Franciscos. I can’t be more proud to know that the milk we use comes from the hands of Francisco.”
A clip of Kleinberger’s visit to the farm can be seen above or click here to see it on YouTube.
Kleinberger later sent Francisco and his family on a paid cruise vacation and a $30,000 cash gift for giving Kleinberger what he called the "highlight" of his week.
