Dairy Fresh Corp


Lem and Aubrey Morrison were brothers who saw an opportunity to purchase a milk receiving facility in Greensboro, Alabama in 1942.  The brothers saw the need for a local facility where area farmers could deliver their raw milk that could be collected and distributed to other dairy processing firms.  They named the operation Morrison Brothers and purchased it for a price of four thousand dollars.  The Morrison Brothers operation received Grade A milk for distribution to bottling plants in Mobile, Birmingham, and Montgomery while continuously seeking out new dairy processing facilities to supply their milk. Then in 1950 a competitor in Mobile was ready to sell their operation that presented an excellent opportunity for expansion and the brothers purchased Dairy Fresh for fifty-five thousand dollars.  The Dairy Fresh brand name was well known in the area and had great marketing potential in other areas.  To this point, over fifty percent of the milk processed and sold through Dixie Dairies was to military facilities.  Dixie Dairies, Blackbelt Creamery, and Dairy Fresh were consolidated in 1951 to become the Dairy Fresh Corporation known far and wide today.
