Alamance Foods, Inc.

Alamance Foods, Inc. was founded over 100 years ago by R.W. Scott. In 1927, his son expanded the business by establishing the Melville Dairy and soon became the major provider of milk, butter, and cream to the population of Alamance County, North Carolina. The next expansion came in 1959 when Alamance Foods was established as a separate company for the production of a new and exciting product: aerosol whipped cream. Today, the company is one of three major producers of aerosol whipped cream in the United States. For more information, please visit their website at www.alamancefoods.com.
