Beatrice Foods Company, one of the leading food companies in the United States, has purchased the Dorchester Cheese Company, Inc., and has taken over possession.

Clifford Wetterau, president of Dorchester Cheese Company, who made the announcement, will remain as manager of the new company’s plant here. The local plant will be served by the same field men and truckers, however, no cheese will be made here; milk will be assembled for delivery from the local plant.

Wetterau became associated with his father-in-law, Fred Reynolds, at the former Bruckerville Cheese Factory in the Town of Holton, in 1947. Reynolds had been in the cheese business for over 60 years. In 1953 they bought the Dorchester Cheese Factory and have manufactured cheese since that time. Jerome Reynolds, town of Holton, a son of Fred, also has assisted in the operation of the factory since starting in Dorchester.

Beatrice Foods has diversified operations in this country and overseas.
