History Starting as a small butter producer in 1884, the Fairmont Creamery Company grew to become one of the nation's largest food processors, Fairmont Foods. By 1959, with its headquarters in Omaha, the little company that had started in Fairmont was among the country's top five hundred corporations. The company moved to Houston in 1974 and in 1980 it became a wholly owned subsidiary of American Financial Corporation.

This container was used in the home of Howard and Louise Platt, Omaha, Nebraska.
