For more than four generations (almost 100 years), Daisy Brand has been a family-owned company committed to providing the freshest, most wholesome dairy products with over half a billion in revenues. The company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas with manufacturing plants in Garland, Texas (opened in 1998), Casa Grande, Arizona (opened in 2008), and Wooster, Ohio (opened in late 2015).

Having grown to above a 45 share, Daisy Sour Cream is the Nation’s number one brand with distribution in all 50 states. Additionally, Daisy is the largest brand in food service, military, and club and is recognized by consumers for “A Dollop of Daisy”, a tagline that put this once small brand on the map.

Daisy’s core values are Clean and Trust and are woven into everything we do. In 2008, the company was given the impressive American Business Ethics Award, awarded by Foundation for Financial Service Professionals.

While maintaining a strong culture of curious and innovative problem-solvers, Daisy Brand tripled employment over the last 15 years. The future looks bright with the opening of its third facility to further strengthen the foundation for growth.
