Alta Dena

World War II was just about ending in 1945 when the Stueve family founded Alta Dena Dairy in City of Industry, California.  Alta Dena has been committed to the highest standard of dairy processing and has kept this high standard continually for over 50 Years.

In 1958 Alta Dena was the dairy pioneer in the emerging Natural Food Industry becoming known as the "healthy milk" in Southern California and also obtained distribution across the United States.   

During the last decade, Alta Dena introduced even more exciting products.  Organic milk, cheeses, orange juice and eggs further carried out the company's theme of "The dairy that cares about your health, naturally." Becoming part of the Dean Foods family in 1999 has enabled Alta Dena to sustain new product development and maintain its brand position as "Pure, Wholesome, and Good."
