The WhiteWave Foods Company makes and sells branded plant-based foods and beverages, coffee creamers and beverages, and premium dairy products throughout North America and Europe. And we do it in a way that’s unlike any company in our industry.
At heart, we are creators, engaged in the making of a new kind of food company. We are unique in possessing both the creativity and the scale not only to meet the world’s emerging needs, but to shape them, and help define the future of food.
With our pioneering Horizon Organic, Silk and Alpro brands, WhiteWave Foods made healthy, alternative food choices mainstream, creating not just new categories, but a new consumer mindset. Today, great-tasting, nutritious, innovative foods like ours are no longer the exception on shelves and in dairy cases. Consumers expect and demand these choices – and every day, WhiteWave delivers them.
Our company’s history is rooted in the spirit and principles of small food. At the same time, tapping into the scale and resources of big food allows us to bring better food to more people.
Uniting the best of big and small enables us to combine entrepreneurial vision with the ability to turn that vision into reality for consumers. It’s the engine behind innovations like refrigerated plant-based beverages made from almonds, coconuts and hazelnuts. It’s also the smart thinking that inspired organic milk with DHA. And it’s what allowed us to imagine ready-to-drink, multi-serve iced coffee – and bring it to market with extraordinary speed.
Uniting the best of big and small also means maintaining constant focus on our environmental and social responsibilities. We pursue reductions against waste, water usage and greenhouse gas emissions throughout our operations, focusing on our plants and our company-owned farms. We are also champions for food security, lending our support to national hunger relief organizations and those that operate in our local communities.
WhiteWave has two reportable business segments: our North America segment, offering plant-based foods and beverages, coffee creamers and beverages, and premium dairy, and our Europe segment, delivering plant-based foods and beverages.
