HistoryEdit

Roots to the Eagle Brand can be traced to 1856, when Gail Borden introduced the Eagle Brand in 1856 to develop a refrigeration and food preservation system, with its condensed milk as the flagship of the company. Then Borden established his own company, Borden, Inc., one year later. In 1874, Eagle Brand became the first registered trademark in the then-British colony of Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, Eagle Brand products are currently produced by Nestlé.

The J.M. Smucker Company bought the canned milk business to Borden in 2007. "Eagle Family Foods LLC" was established when Paul Smucker left the Smucker Company in 2014 to carry on his own enterprise. He partnered with his friend Jeff Boyle, and they founded "Kelso" to run their own food company. Being awarded that Smucker was selling its canning milk business, Paul Smucker acquired it, establishing the "Eagle Foods" in December 2015.[1][2]

In August 2016, Eagle Foods bought the popcorn brand, G.H. Cretors, derived from the Chicago-based manufacturing company Cretors, established in 1885.[1]
