While TreeHouse Foods, Inc. was formed in 2005, the history of one of our key operating companies, Bay Valley Foods, LLC, dates back to 1862 with the formation of Alart and McGuire, pioneers in the pickle industry. Bay Valley Foods has experienced many changes and expansions throughout the years. It was previously known as Dean Specialty Foods, a division of Dallas-based Dean Foods Company.
In 2005 Dean Foods Company incorporated TreeHouse Foods, Inc. to spin off certain speciality businesses. Later that year, TreeHouse began operating as an independent entity after completing the spin-off, and our TreeHouse has been growing ever since.
As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we proudly acknowledge the acquisitions that make our TreeHouse what it is today.
