Delivering Top Quality Dairy & Non-Dairy Products for More Than 80 Years
Instantwhip Chicago

insta.pnginsta.pnginsta.pngiwc2.pngAt the height of the Great Depression, Professor Dr. G. Frederick Smith, his brothers Allyne H. Smith and Clarence Smith founded Instantwhip and brought aerosol whipped cream to market for the first time. Dr. Smith and his brother Allyne devised a system to take dairy cream, process, package and pressurize it in returnable containers to produce Instantwhip whipped cream for use in restaurants, ice cream shops and soda fountains nationwide. The Smith's returnable container and filling system made a process invented and patented by Professor Dr. Charles A. Goetz for whipping cream under pressure both economical and commercially viable.

Since 1933 distributors of Instantwhip Foods have grown to become international manufacturers and distributors of fine dairy and non-dairy refrigerated food products to the foodservice and bakery industry.

Instantwhip is the official Dairy Sponsor of Coffee Fest Chicago. Stop by booths #104, 106 & 108 to discover how their extensive product line can benefit your business!
