Pepperidge Farm Celebrates 75th Anniversary With More Delicious New Products

Good Food 

Few brands ring more true as All-American than Pepperidge Farm which was founded on August 15, 1937 by a young woman named Margaret Rudkin in response  to her son's allergies to the preservatives commonly found in commercially-prepared foods at the time.

As a Baby Boomer I can't help but love this vintage photo of Mrs. Rudkin, the forward-thinking lady we all have to thank for bringing those cute little Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers to America from Switzerland in 1962. Apparently there are millions of other consumers who feel the same way.
Many new bakery products later the company that began with a caring mom who baked a healthy loaf of natural whole grain bread in her rural Connecticut kitchen that sold for 25 cents is still going strong, celebrating their 75th Anniversary this month. 

In fact today one of the most widely recognized brands in U.S. supermarkets continues to bake about 206 million loaves of bread annually. They also produce somewhere around 558 million Milano cookies per year -- that if they were laid side by side would be enough to cross America from coast to coast seven times!

Joining old-fashioned favorites like Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and a wide variety of healthful breads that are still available today, are the newest members of the brand's family
