Introduction Oregon has deep roots in farming and agriculture, and one of the most prominent local names in this region is the Tillamook County Creamery Association. It is for that reason that our team chose this company in which to conduct an analysis. Tillamook County Creamery Association, or abbreviated TCCA, was founded in 1909, but can trace its roots even earlier than that to around 1854, when several dairy farmers banded together and built a schooner dubbed “The Morning Star of Tillamook” to transport their butter to Portland. The schooner is shown on the Tillamook label to this day. Since the inception of the co-op, TCCA has made its mark in the dairy industry. The co-op started with 10 small, independent cheese plants and today includes over 140 family-owned dairies. The high standards that the TCCA has established reflect their economic impact. TCCA boasts sales around $315 million, up $100 million dollars in eight years, and was ranked 49 th in Dairy Food’s Dairy 100. The company has recently constructed an additional plant in Boardman, Oregon to expand its business and have a more national reach in the dairy industry. The Tillamook County Creamery Association is a healthy local business with a hopeful outlook and endless possibilities.
