      A lifetime of nutrition

      More than 80 years ago, Dean Foods was born in America’s heartland. Since then, the world has changed beyond belief. But from our first milk delivery to life in the digital age, we’ve maintained a refreshingly simple passion: bringing nutritious, wholesome food and beverages to every occasion.

      Today, we’ve grown to become an industry leader and our products are welcome guests in homes and restaurant kitchens across the nation.

      Nourishing bodies and souls

      We take around 10% of the U.S. milk supply and turn it into food and beverages that fuel better lives –nutritious, wholesome, and flavorful at the same time.

      Goodness in every moment

      From breakfast to bedtime, from baby showers to retirement parties, we make products for every occasion.

      Nourishing communities

      With local sourcing, we keep things natural – and play a role in in supporting farmers, strengthening the economy, and bringing communities together.

      A proven past

      From a single location to the largest direct-to-store milk distributor in the United States, dairy has fueled our success just as it fuels healthy lives.
