Vintage throwback packaging for Oakhurst Dairy

From Oakhurst

PORTLAND – On throwback Thursday, guess who’s throwing it back? Oakhurst Dairy!

To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Oakhurst is having some fun with its white milk packaging–the Maine dairy company has created a vintage label using a beloved version of its acorn dating from the 50s to give New Englanders a little taste of nostalgia.

The limited-edition packaging will be available on all Oakhurst half gallon and pint white milk products starting in early June, so grab it at local grocery and convenience stores while you can!

“We’re excited to roll out this limited-edition packaging as a nod to yesteryear and engage our loyal consumers in our anniversary celebration,” said John Bennett, President and CEO of Oakhurst Dairy. “Over the last 100 years, we’ve changed up our packaging and labels a few times but one thing that has always remained the same since 1921 is our delicious, nutritious milk sourced from Maine dairy farms. We hope consumers have as much fun reminiscing as we’ve had and enjoy having this little piece of Oakhurst nostalgia in their fridge at home.”

Oakhurst Dairy was founded in 1921 and started delivering milk in glass bottles to homes on two routes in Portland with horse drawn wagons.

A hundred years later, Oakhurst processes nearly half a million gallons of milk a week that is sourced from local Maine dairy farmers to make its line of dairy products. In turn, those products are delivered to more than 1,800 grocery stores, convenient stores, and schools throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and Northern Massachusetts each year. Once there, a little piece of Maine in a carton makes its way to breakfast, lunch, and dinner tables across the region.

Oakhurst has multiple initiatives planned throughout 2021 to celebrate a century in business, including pPartnering with several iconic Maine companies to pour on the kindness and co-host events and programs throughout the year; Creating social media activations celebrating individuals in the local community, the company’s history, its farmers, and employees; Hosting an Oakie kids challenge encouraging children to do 100 Acts of Kindness, Goodness, and Maineness throughout the year; and conducting internal employee celebrations.

And revealing more exciting activities throughout the year

Oakhurst is Northern New England’s leading dairy brand and has stood behind every glass of milk and product for 100 years. While the FDA states there is no significant difference between milk from cows treated with artificial growth hormone, Oakhurst made history in 2003 when it asked its milk producers to take America’s First Farmer’s pledge not to use artificial growth hormone.
