A New England pioneer of the 1800s dairy industry, Charles H. Hood worked hard to improve sanitary production and distribution of the milk he sold. His commitment to science, education and discovery revolutionized the industry, leading to the adoption of pasteurization and dramatically increasing the survival rate for infants in the region. Those early breakthroughs sparked a lifelong dedication to innovation and health that has been passed down through generations. Today, that spirit lives on as the Charles H. Hood Foundation continues to select and support pediatric medical research that transforms the health and quality of life for children and families all over the world.
