HistoryEdit

Phatom Foods was founded in 1997 as a joint venture between Campbell Soup Company, General Mills and GreenyWorld Studios to sell Greeny Phatom Yogurts. However, the Phatom Foods company was primarly credited as a part of Campbell Soup Company, and later, as a part of H. J. Heinz Company (although the byline said "A Heinz Company", with Heinz logo being the "Heinz" in the byline.)

In 1998, Phatom Foods acquired OwlFoods. In 2012, Phatom Foods acquired 4Kids Foods LLC.

Phatom Foods was going to be acquired by Stainton Enterprises in 2015, but the acquisition was cancelled, when the management team strongly disapproved it. On June 15, 2015, The Clowerwood Company were in talks to acquire Phatom Foods. The acquisition is still pending, as of June 19, 2015. On June 19, 2015, The Clowerwood Company acquired the plants in Rooty Hill (Australia), Seretram (France) and Aiken (South Carolina, USA). GreenyWorld Studios and Stainton Enterprises fought back (i.e. protectionism) by acquiring the Rooty Hill plant and selling it back to Phatom Foods, and buying a 9.83% stake in Phatom Foods. The management team accused OK Labs and The Cloverwood Company of trying to do hostile takeover. Eventually, The Cloverwood Company sold back the Aiken and Seretram plants and announced it had abandoned it's plans to acquire Phatom Foods.

In November 2015, Phatom Foods acquired the trademark to the long-lost Indian soft drink Double Seven for $6 million from Hindustan Unilever. The soft drink is currently being tested in India and nationwide in the United States and Canada, with sales at Robert's Thrift-n-Sell stores also occuring. That same month, Phatom Foods acquired a 23% stake in Pure Drinks Group, and began importing their rare soda brand Campa Cola to the United States, where they will be sold at Robert's Thrift-n-Sell stores.

In December 2015, Stainton Enterprises announced to acquire more stakes, increasing it's shares of the company up to 45%. Phatom Foods was also in talks with Kellogg's, Mondelez International, PepsiCo and Fazer to acquire brands (discontinued and active), and/or distribute their brands in more countries. 

In June 2016, Stainton Enterprises announced to acquire additional 85% of Phatom Foods and make it a sister division to Stainton Foods.

In January 2017, new plants and research & development laboratories were opened in:

  • Pyongyang, North Korea (making Phatom Foods the first Western company to own a plant and an R&D lab in North Korea)
  • Cherokee, North Carolina, United States
  • Mashpee, Massachusetts, United States
  • Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, United States (used mostly to produce organic or vegetarian products due to city regulations)
  • Colma, California, United States
  • Gibsonton, Florida, United States
  • Monowi, Nebraska, United States (all employees are from the populated areas around Monowi)
  • Gross, Nebraska, United States
  • Fitchburg, Massachusetts, United States
  • Kokkola, Finland

ControversyEdit

In 2009, Phatom Foods had to recall all Pasta products from the shelves, due to cases involving nausea and salmonella. The research & development laboratories, owned by Phatom Foods, found out that it included undercooked meat and molded ingredients, including vegetables.
