Schwan Company is committed to sound corporate governance practices. Our “Business Ethics Code of Conduct” is based on our core values of growth, hard work, helping one another, enthusiasm and integrity. Our code guides all of us, from our board of directors to new employees, to conduct ourselves in a manner that reflects the highest level of ethical business conduct. On Tuesday, March 18, 1952, a 23-year-old Marvin Schwan packed his beat-up 1946 Dodge panel van with 14 gallons of his family's signature ice cream and delivered it to rural families in western Minnesota. At the end of that historic trip, all 14 gallons were sold and the Schwan's home-delivery business was born.
Schwan's Company is a multibillion-dollar private company with more than 7,500 employees who are passionate about bringing quality foods to millions of people every day. Based in Minnesota, the company sells fine frozen foods on its traditional delivery trucks, in grocery-store freezers, and in the food-service industry.
Schwan Company is driven to bring you delicious foods and reliable services. That's how we grew from “one-man-and-a-truck” in rural Minnesota to a multibillion-dollar private company with 7,500 team members nationwide. Our commitment shows in all we do, from careful ingredient selection and quality food making to a great experience wherever you shop and eat.
Our culinary team takes pride in crafting frozen foods for stores, schools, restaurants, and home delivery. For us, it's all about delicious foods you can enjoy and trust. That's why we work to make foods that make sense for how you eat today by:
