The Beginning of Life in the Valley
history dates all the way back to 1862 with the formation of Alart and
McGuire as a pioneer in the pickle industry. Over the years, our business
has seen many expansions and changes. Until recently, we were known as
Dean Specialty Foods. Over time, the company evolved to become one of the largest
producers of pickles and non-dairy creamer in the U.S., with dominant private
label market shares in both categories. We are also a leader in aseptic
cheese sauce and puddings and have strong, regional syrup and sauce businesses.
2005, Dean Specialty Foods Group, LLC was spun off from Dean Foods and
became Bay Valley Foods, a division of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. TreeHouse,
now an independent and publicly traded company, is led by Sam Reed and
a team of seasoned food executives who were largely responsible for the
tremendous growth at Keebler in the 90s. Foodservice and Private Label
growth drove much of the Keebler success and play a key role in the strategic
growth plans for TreeHouse and the new Bay Valley Foods. While the company
name has changed several times throughout the years, our commitment to
excellence has stayed the same.
