WhiteWave Foods

With our pioneering Horizon, Silk, So Delicious, Alpro, Vega™, Earthbound Farm and International Delight brands, WhiteWave Foods made alternative food choices mainstream, creating not just new categories, but also a new consumer mindset. Today, great-tasting, nutritious, innovative foods like ours are no longer the exception in grocery stores. Consumers expect and demand new choices ⎯ and every day, WhiteWave delivers them. Our company’s history is rooted in the spirit and principles of small food. But The WhiteWave Foods Company has the scale and resources of big food, which allows us to bring better food to more people. Uniting the best of big and small also means maintaining constant focus on our environmental and social responsibilities. We work to reduce 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. The chance to change the world for the better is powerful motivation. People want to work at The WhiteWave Foods Company because we’re creating a different kind of food company, one that combines the spirit and principles of small food with the scale and resources of big food. Many talented people choose a career at WhiteWave over other opportunities because they are inspired by our vision. Everyone at WhiteWave wants to make a difference in the future of our company.
