Organic Valley was founded in 1988 under the name ‘CROPP (Coulee Region Organic Produce Pool) Cooperative. What began as a group of Wisconsin family farms selling their produce soon expanded into the production and local distribution of vegetables, and dairy products. The brand name “Organic Valley” was soon adopted, and the abbreviation “CROPP” was adjusted to Cooperative Regions of Organic Producer Pools.

Products are marketed in all 50 states, Canada, China, Japan, and 22 other countries. The United States is divided into three selling markets: the Western, Central, and Eastern Divisions. Directly connected cooperative producers, distributors, and sales staff are in charge of each division. Organic Valley produces six regional milks that are produced, processed and distributed in New England, Northeast, Heartland, Rocky Mountain, California, and the Pacific Northwest.
