Land O’Frost is a third generation, family-owned business, founded by Antoon Van Eekeren, the grandfather of the current owner, in 1941. An immigrant from Holland, Van Eekeren came to the United States blazing with the American dream of success and ownership. He quickly capitalized on the growing wartime need for freezer storage and purchased a building on the south side of Chicago to house people’s frozen meats, building an empire of frozen meat pies, TV dinners and thinly sliced beef. In 1975, Land O’Frost purchased a Birds Eye vegetable processing plant in Searcy, Arkansas and by 1978, the partnership was producing 35 million pounds of product a year. Land O’Frost has also developed technology which has provided high-quality meals for the United States military and for the weight loss industry.
