We Continue to Provide Wholesome, Great-Tasting Dairy Products and the Highest Levels of Quality, Service and Value

On November 12, 2019, we announced that Dean Foods and substantially all of our subsidiaries initiated voluntary Chapter 11 reorganization proceedings in the Southern District of Texas. We intend to use this process to protect and support our ongoing business operations and address debt and unfunded pension obligations while we work toward an orderly and efficient sale of the Company.

We also announced that we are engaged in advanced discussions with Dairy Farmers of America regarding a potential sale of substantially all of our assets. If we ultimately reach an agreement on the terms of a sale, the transaction would be subject to regulatory approval and higher or otherwise better offers.

During this process, we are operating as normal, continuing to provide customers with an uninterrupted supply of high-quality dairy products, and supporting our suppliers as we always have.

We remain focused on providing the highest levels of quality, service and value.
