About Us


Dairy Fresh Foods remains true to its founding as a multi-generation, family run business. In the 1920’s, immigrant patriarch Abraham Must made and peddled bulk fresh curd cheeses of the type then popularly used by commercial customers, such as bakeries, and enjoyed by retail consumers. His youngest of eight children, Meyer “Mike” Must, joined this enterprise early on. Mike passed away in 1997, though his wife, Mary, continues working in the business today. Sons Alan and Joel serve as co-presidents, while Alan’s son, Jay, rounds out the family presence.

The company long ago ceased manufacturing cheese in favor of distributing food products, many under its own private label brands. Completing its modern day transition, in 1996 the company began trading under the more appropriately descriptive name of Dairy Fresh Foods, Inc. rather than continuing to use the historic corporate name of Detroit City Dairy, Inc.

Our Facility

Dairy Fresh Foods operates out of a modern 200,000 square-foot headquarters and distribution facility featuring high-bay dry grocery, refrigerated and frozen racked storage areas, along with a temperature-controlled dock and 25 bay door loading docks. This convenient location in Taylor, Michigan is just off Interstate 94, minutes west of Detroit and a few miles east of Detroit Metropolitan Airport, allowing easy access to several major Interstate and highway interchanges.

Our Team

Our customer relations team is comprised of both headquarter executives and sales representatives local to the customers that we serve.

Buyers and category managers work closely with our suppliers and sales team to optimize product mix and pricing for our customers.

Generally speaking, our team is very experienced and quite stable, with core members of management and other key groups enjoying many years – even decades in some cases – of tenure with our company. Employment opportunities at Dairy Fresh Foods still arise, most often within our warehouse and driver teams. Occasionally a sales representative position will open due to new business growth or geograhic opportunity. Experienced applicants may contact us to inquire about current openings.

Annual Food Show and Open House, Cyclical Selling Events

Dairy Fresh Foods is proud of its efficient, spacious facility and happy to gives tours to existing and prospective customers and vendors. In fact, during our first full operational year in Taylor, we hosted customers at an open house theme Food Show at our new premises. Customers and vendors responded so enthusiastically to attending this on-site event that we began conducting an annual on-site food show each year around the end of March.

Other traditional selling events include Dairy Fresh Foods's cyclical pre-sale programs that feature seasonally appropriate specials and unique item opportunities to help drive sales. Contact us to arrange a facility tour, to get information about our next Food Show or to learn about our cyclical selling events.
