Our History

Founded in 1899 in Richmond, Virginia, Interbake Foods was originally known as Southern Biscuit Works, a regional baking company that packaged its baked goods in decorative tins under the trademark of “FFV”, which stood for “Famous Foods of Virginia”.



Interbake Foods was created in 1967 when George Weston merged its other US-based bakery purchases to create the Interbake name.  Under George Weston Limited, Interbake Foods grew and expanded its portfolio to include Girl Scout cookies; cookies, crackers, and specialty items for retail and contract customers.  We have operated a thriving business for over 100 years.  While much has changed since we began as Southern Biscuit Works in 1899, our commitment to quality products, customer service, and operational excellence has not.  No matter what we produce, we are known for our consistent product quality and quick response to customer needs.


On October 29th, 2012, Interbake Foods became the official licensed baker of Mrs. Fields pre-packaged cookies sold at retailers throughout North America. Read the Press Release
