Our Story

Tedford/Tellico, Inc. was established in 1982 as a distributor of dried dairy products. The company markets dairy ingredients produced by more than 60 dairy cooperatives and proprietary manufacturers across the United States. Our target market is the industrial and institutional food industry.

Tedford/Tellico supplies dairy ingredients to a wide spectrum of the food and animal feed industries including ice cream manufacturers, cheese processors, bakeries, snack food companies, spice blenders, beverage and chocolate makers, veal and swine feed manufacturers, and calf milk replacer companies. Customers are located throughout the United States, and in most regions of the world such as Latin America, Asia, European Union, Middle East and Russia.

The primary products of Tedford/Tellico are nonfat dry milk, whole milk powder, whey powder, whey and milk protein concentrates, lactose, butter, buttermilk powder, sweetened condensed milk and cream. Our company differs from our competitors in that we have low overhead and maximum flexibility. This allows us to be very customer specific with our efforts. Our intention is that the company will become the supplier of choice in the market place.
