Land O’Frost is a third generation, family-owned business, started by my grandfather, Antoon Van Eekeren, in 1941. Antoon was an immigrant from Holland, who came to the United States with dreams of success, much like many other immigrants. He realized the growing wartime demand for freezer storage and purchased a building on the south side of Chicago to house people’s frozen meats. He was a visionary who looked at the needs of consumers and acted on them. In 1952, he expanded by producing frozen meat pies, TV dinners and wafer-sliced beef. The products were sold under the Land O’Frost name, and the company became incorporated six years later.
