About Us

Sprouting from Healthful Roots

Since the late 1960s, White Mountain has been shaped by the Murray family’s passion for health-conscious living, guiding our mission to craft organic, minimally processed yogurt. This commitment is deeply rooted in the tradition of Bulgarian yogurt, known for its natural probiotic richness and exceptional quality.

“I created White Mountain Foods the way I lived my life. It was not about the money. It was and is about creating and sustaining right livelihood through honest and productive work that enhances individual and community life. My heart was in it. I created delicious health food for a family dinner table. This is our core value.”

Reed Murray

Our Team + Our Family

At the heart of White Mountain Yogurt lies a story of family, tradition, and a passion for wholesome living. It’s always been more than a business – it’s a family legacy, deeply rooted in our founder’s dedication to healthy living and family.

Today, as the company continues to flourish under family leadership, every jar of yogurt we produce is a testament to our enduring commitment to these principles, nurtured from one generation to the next.

1950s - 60s

It all started with Robert Reed Murray, the future founder of White Mountain, born in Houston, Texas. When the Murray family moved back to Texas from California, they ignited a passion for healthier eating, planting the seeds for White Mountain’s future.


The Murray brothers, Reed included, embrace vegetarianism, a move that leads them to Good Food People, Inc. in Austin. Here, their culinary exploration kicks off, brewing the early batches of what would later evolve into White Mountain Yogurt.


Reed Murray takes a leap, founding Purist Foods, Inc., and bringing White Mountain Yogurt under its wing. From delivering yogurts in a modest pickup to introducing a range of vegetarian delights, the brand begins to carve its niche.
