The J.M. Smucker Company ( was founded in 1897 when the Company's namesake and founder sold his first product — apple butter — from the back of a horse-drawn wagon. He used an old family recipe and hand-signed every package as his personal guarantee of quality.

In 2005, over a century later, the Company is the market leader in fruit spreads, peanut butter, shortening and oils, ice cream toppings, and health and natural foods beverages in North America under such icon brands as Smucker's®, Jif® and Crisco®.

In June 2004, the Company expanded its family of products to include such brands as Pillsbury® baking mixes and ready-to-spread frostings; Hungry Jack® pancake mixes, syrups and potato side dishes, and Martha White® baking mixes and ingredients in the US, along with Robin Hood® flour and baking mixes, and Bick’s® pickles and condiments in Canada. For over 107 years, The J.M. Smucker Company has been headquartered in Orrville, Ohio, and has been family run for four generations.

In 1968 Smucker's® introduced Goober®, peanut butter striped with jelly.  In 2000 Smucker's® introduced Uncrustables®, frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the crusts already cut off.
