A brave spirit, innovative mind, and lover of quality confections, William (Bill) Shade (1918-1999) was a food business entrepreneur from Kansas City, Missouri. His hard work and adventurous spirit carried him from the Army Air Corp during WWII~where he was shot down over occupied France-~to California where he founded Shade Foods (now owned by Kerry Group). Appreciating orchards and farm life, Bill developed tree nut orchards and saw the need for high quality, natural tree nut products manufacturers and suppliers. As a result, he founded Cache Creek Foods in 1993.

In 2001, Bill’s son-in-law, Matthew Morehart, assumed operations management. Matt brought a wealth of business experience, having worked for family companies from a young age in logging and milling, real estate, ranching, and food manufacturing. As an 8th generation Californian, Matt appreciates and cares for the land. He is committed to careful growing and manufacturing processes that are eco-friendly and nutritious.
