In 1975 it was acquired by Data Processing Financial and General Corporation, known as DPF, a computer leasing company, that ran into difficulties with IBM during the period of the IBM antitrust battles. As a result, DPF was interested in changing business models, and using its cash to take over a low-tech company. The merged company, with headquarters in Hartsdale, New York, took the name, "DPF," until the divestiture of the remaining technology assets. At that point, it changed the company name back to Interstate.
During the DPF era, the company invested heavily in its plants and also acquired Silver Loaf Baking Company, Eddy Bakeries, and Mrs. Cubbison's Foods, Inc
