In 1921, 320 dairy farmers came together in St. Paul, Minnesota, to form the Minnesota Cooperative Creameries Association.
The idea was simple — join forces to effectively market and distribute members’ dairy production across the country. They likely didn't know that they had set the wheels in motion for the future of their industry.
Today, we continue to live and work with the same passion and are united in a common cause, committed to excellence and inspired by our place in the world.
Our international journey kicked off 52 years later, as we began to support local agriculture in developing nations around the world. We have an unparalleled farm-to-fork view of agriculture, which makes us uniquely qualified to fulfill our purpose of feeding human progress around the world.
Whether across oceans, or just across fences, we have never lost sight of those core values established in 1921; coming together to make things better.
What started with a few farms has grown, allowing us to make a bigger, better impact on the world around us.
