ST. LOUIS (April 10, 2019) – AB Mauri® North America, a leader in yeast and bakery ingredient products and solutions, will mark the 150th anniversary of its iconic brand, Fleischmann’s® Yeast, June 8, 2019, at a Founders’ Day event in Fleischmanns, New York.
Fleischmanns, New York
The village of Fleischmanns will serve as Founders’ Day host for its namesake brand, celebrating a bygone era in American history with activities from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 8 that include:
Fleischmanns, New York, was named after the Fleischmann family – longtime summer residents and benefactors of the area. At one time, the family had a 160-acre property consisting of multiple mansions and numerous outbuildings. Today, only one of the family’s original homes dating back to the 1880s remains. The 5,000-square-foot property – now known as Spillian – welcomes visitors from around the world and is a prime example of a 19th-century Catskills retreat. Spillian will host a reception and panel on Friday, June 7, from 6-8 p.m. where panelists will discuss the area’s history, the Fleischmann family and local connections to baseball.
”“There is no better place to celebrate the rich history of Fleischmann’s Yeast than in the location bearing its name,”Rick OleshakVice President of Marketing, AB Mauri North America
The Fleischmann’s brand is the country’s oldest baker’s yeast and the first standardized commercial yeast in the U.S. Introduced in 1868 by enterprising Austrian brewer, Charles Fleischmann and his brother Maximilian, Fleischmann’s Yeast is now part of AB Mauri’s portfolio of products.
“The Village of Fleischmanns is in a beautiful part of New York and an area rich in history,” said Michelle Sidrane, chair of the event and a leadership member of Fleischmanns First. “If you’ve never been to this area or want to visit again, Founders’ Day will be the perfect opportunity to experience everything our wonderful community has to offer.”
