How Galloway Company started
Our founder, Edwin Pierce Galloway, began his career at the Galloway-West Company in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. He was instrumental in developing national markets for Wisconsin dairy products. During that time, he also was a dairy farmer and world-class breeder of Brown Swiss cattle. The original family homestead is now the historic Galloway House Museum and Village in Fond du Lac.
Ed purchased an interest in Neenah Milk Products in 1932. After World War II, his sons, Ned, John and Dick joined the firm. On October 30, 1956, they fully acquired the business, which was renamed Galloway Company.
Galloway Company Today
Today the third generation of Galloways—Jeff, Tod, Tim, Ted and Pat—have leadership and production roles in both Galloway Company and its subsidiary Classic Mix Partners.
During our early history, Galloway Company primarily served local markets. But, capitalizing on our innovative manufacturing techniques, ability to produce custom products and reputation for quality, we began producing bulk dairy products for national markets.
Today, Galloway Company specializes in producing a variety of custom liquid concentrated dairy blends with the ability to offer our customers unique formulations in:
Classic Mix Partners
Classic Mix Partners, a subsidiary of Galloway Company, is the largest manufacturer of dairy mixes in Wisconsin and supplies customers throughout the country. The Galloway family has long been involved in ice cream mix manufacturing. In 1933 Ed Galloway was asked to produce a fresh frozen custard formula for the Chicago World’s Fair.
Other mix varieties soon followed. The company developed a soft serve mix after a demand for the frozen dairy dessert began sweeping the nation. Later, John Galloway developed the first shake mix in Wisconsin. The company continued to expand upon and develop more formulas.
Classic Mix Partners was formed as a joint venture of the mix divisions of Galloway Company and Foremost Farms USA in order to enhance value to the companies and their customers. The partnership was highly successful, but when Foremost Farms USA changed its business operation in 2009, Galloway Company purchased Foremost’s interest.
Today, Classic Mix Partners markets more than 60 formulas of dairy and non-dairy dessert mixes and is considered a leader in the dairy dessert business. Classic Mix Partners has a reputation nationally for supplying quick-service restaurants and ice cream shops with custom formulations to match their equipment, processes and customers’ tastes.
