Cumberland Dairy had outgrown its processing plant by late 1977 and purchased a 36 acre tract of land in Rosenhayn where it built a 7,200 square foot refrigerated warehouse and a 2,000 square foot office. This new warehouse would accommodate all the refrigerated products for McDonald’s and converted the Bridgeton facility back to being a processing plant only.
In December of 2011, the company lost the man who was the driving force behind the company’s tremendous growth. Carmine Catalana III passed away at the age of 81. It was under his leadership that Cumberland Dairy went from a small local dairy, to one of the nation’s premier manufacturers of specialty dairy products.
