- Company Information:
LuVel operates a modern day dairy manufacturing facility producing a full line of milk items, as well as ice cream and other frozen desert products. Also, LuVel has the only ice cream production plant located in Mississippi and one of only two milk bottling facilities in the state.
The company was charted July 10, 1919, as the Kosciusko Creamery. Our focus for over 85 years has remained the same: Providing superior quality products with top rated service for a low price. In 1930, the creamery's owner, Mr. Z. O. Graham, held a contest to give the company a new name. The name chosen was a combination of names from Mr. Graham's daughter - Lucinda, and his wife - Velma--hence the name LuVel.
In 1979, Jack Briscoe and other investors purchased LuVel. "Mr. Jack" has since retired and his son, Jimmy Briscoe now runs the company. Under the Briscoe's leadership, LuVel currently has over 225 employees and operates about 100 routes or distributors in five states: Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee.
LuVel Dairy Products, Inc. is proud to be part of the South and its great Southern heritage. LuVel places a strong emphasis on community support and service by assisting schools and universities, churches, civic clubs and communities.
