Sturm Foods was originally started by Arthur Sturm and his sons as a dairy farm in 1905 as A. Sturm & Sons. The family began buying eggs from local farmers and shipping them to Chicago.
During the 1930s, business expanded to include commodities such as sugar, seed, twine, potatoes, flour, coal and gasoline. World War II brought continued growth when the company began to manufacture bulk dried food products, such as eggs and powdered milk, to be delivered to American servicemen.
The company entered the private label distribution market in the early 1970s and continues this business model. The business flourished throughout the eighties and nineties with a broadening product line and employment increasing from 150 to 500 employees. In May 2005, Sturm Foods was acquired by the private equity firm HM Capital Partners. This new relationship strengthened Sturm Foods position in the marketplace and provided a stepping-stone to continued growth and success.
On December 1, 2009 HM Capital announced that Sturm Foods was sold to TreeHouse Foods as a subsidiary of Bay Valley Foods. Under the Bay Valley portfolio, Sturm Foods continues to take pride in manufacturing a variety of quality dry food products including hot beverages such as coffees, teas, cappuccinos & cocoas.
