Maker Durkee Famous Foods

Maker Details In 1929 Glidden got into the food business by acquiring in swift succession seven good-sized food companies. It bought margarine producers in Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, and California, then paid $1.8 million for the plant and facilities of the long-established E.R. Durkee & Co., of Elmhurst, Long Island. One of the oldest names in the US food industry, Durkee was founded before 1860. Thereupon the Glidden food division was blanketed under the well-known trade name of Durkee Famous Foods, along with Durkee's mayonnaise, salad dressing, Worcestershire sauce, and spices (Fortune 1949; Glidden Coatings and Resins 1984).
