About the Inclusion of WhiteWave-Alpro and Morningstar Foods in the Dean Foods Corporate Responsibility Report

This report includes the contributions of The WhiteWave Foods Company (NYSE: WWAV) to Dean Foods sustainability metrics through late 2012 (when this site was first published) because Dean Foods controlled WhiteWave during such time and reflected WhiteWave as the WhiteWave-Alpro segment in its financial statements.  WhiteWave became a separate publicly traded company in October 2012 and Dean Foods completed a spin-off and subsequent divestiture of its remaining ownership interests in WhiteWave during 2013. Similarly, this report includes the contributions of its prior business segment, Morningstar Foods, through the end of 2012. Dean Foods sold Morningstar Foods in early 2013.
