Smucker's® Company Story
The Smucker's® legend begins with a legend of another sort. The story of Johnny "Appleseed" Chapman. Early in the 19th century Johnny Chapman wandered the Ohio countryside sowing the seeds of apple trees, and the beginnings of the Smucker legend.
In 1897 Jerome Monroe (J.M) Smucker opened a mill in Orrville, Ohio to process apples into cider - the fruit of the trees Johnny Appleseed had planted. J.M. Smucker soon made his first apple butter spread that he sold off the back of a horse-drawn wagon.
The cork on every crock sold was hand-signed by J.M. Smucker as his personal guarantee of quality. And it's a signature that still appears on every jar today as it represents our continuing guarantee of quality.
Smucker's® products have been in Canada for over 20 years and are now a market leader in jams and jellies, fruit spread and even ice cream toppings. Wholesome high-quality products, from our family to yours.
