Shedd's Country Crock is a food brand owned by Unilever. It originally sold spreads such as margarine (and cheese for a limited time), but later extended to side dishes, particularly mashed potatoes and pasta, made by Hormel under license.

The brand was originally owned by Beatrice Foods before they sold the Shedd's business to Unilever in 1984 following Beatrice's merger with Esmark.

As of July 2015, Shedd's Country Crock changed the recipe to remove preservatives and artificial flavors. This new recipe has been poorly received. This has resulted in the Country Crock website and Facebook page being flooded with negative reviews.[1][2]
