The newly consolidated $1.2 billion consumer packaged goods organization, which boasts a stable of branded products, including Silk soymilk, Horizon Organic, International Delight coffee creamers, Land O' Lakes creamers, Hershey Milkshakes, Marie's dips and salad dressings and TofuTown tofu products, will be known as White Wave Foods, and will be located in Broomfield, Colo. The newly named company was established when Dean Foods consolidated much of its branded business into one consumer packaged goods organization.



The name White Wave Foods will not be featured on any products but will solely represent the company and its leadership position in the food industry.



"We believe the new name, White Wave Foods, will allow us to easily communicate to our consumers and customers that our organization will continue to manufacture and sell premium branded food products that are innovative, authentic and nutritious while leading the industry in purpose and socially- responsible values," said Steve Demos, president of the newly consolidated company.



In addition to its new name, the company also announces that the members of the White Wave Foods executive team have been selected.



Joining Demos are the following members of the White Wave Foods executive team:



-Todd Beckman, who has been with White Wave Inc. since 2002, is leading the organization's integration efforts as Senior Vice President of Business Development. He will be charged with managing consolidation activities as the new organization merges three corporate environments into one.
