Item 8.01. Other Events.

On December 3, 2012, Dean Foods Company, the parent company of The WhiteWave Foods Company (the "Company"), announced that it had entered into an agreement to sell the business of its wholly-owned subsidiary Morningstar Foods, LLC ("Morningstar"). In connection with the sale of Morningstar, the Company entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") to sell certain of its assets to Morningstar for $60 million, net of taxes. The Agreement provides for (1) the termination of the Company's option to purchase plant capacity and property in Frederick, Maryland from Morningstar; (2) a right of first refusal with respect to excess production capacity to the extent any such capacity becomes available at the Frederick facility; and (3) the sale to Morningstar of certain manufacturing equipment used to produce certain products for the Company at Morningstar's Sulphur Springs, Texas plant. In addition, the Company and Morningstar will modify certain terms of existing intercompany commercial agreements between the two companies, which modifications are not expected to have a material effect on the Company.

The Company intends to use the proceeds received to reduce Company debt.

The press release announcing the transaction is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference.
