Who is Guida's Dairy?
Guida’s Dairy is one of the leading dairies in New England. Guida’s Dairy is a regional processor of fluid milk, cream, ice cream mixes, fruit drinks, orange juice, water and a variety of other dairy products. The company has experienced remarkable growth over the last few years. Expansion by maintaining a conservative and solid approach has been key to its development.
Guida’s Dairy attributes this business surge to numerous factors, but insists the most important ingredient in the company’s recipe for success which can be traced back to its founder, Alexander Guida Jr. He was one of 13 children who grew up on a working dairy farm. Al left the farm and started by selling milk Seibert Dairy in New Britain in 1932 at the height of the Great Depression.
During World War II, HP Hood wanted to buy Guida’s supplier with plans of ultimately eliminating its sub-dealers. Rather than selling, Alexander made an offer to purchase the Seibert Dairy from Arthur Seibert in 1947, Arthur Siebert and his family founded the dairy in 1886 at the company’s present location in New Britain, CT.
Since then, Guida’s Dairy has had the reputation of supplying the finest products and service to its large customer base. With a fleet of more than 200 vehicles, the company delivers products throughout southern New England. The Guida’s Dairy service area includes Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Northern New Jersey, New York City, Long Island and eastern New York.
The company says its emphasis on quality control cannot be overstated. In fact, with an 18-day code on all of its fluid milk products, Guida’s Dairy says it guarantees the utmost integrity of its product line.
