The long history of the Smucker's® brand name still holds the same values and quality traditions it did in the beginning. Starting in the late 19th century, Jerome Monroe Smucker began pressing apples and crafting apple butter out of a small mill he opened in 1897, hand signing every individual product as a personal guarantee of quality. J.M. Smucker's signature is still found on every jar of fruit spread ensuring that the quality that made his products famous then still adheres to the same superior standards today. Over the last hundred plus years the Smucker's® family of products has grown and expanded to better suit the needs and ever growing demands of our exceptional customers. Smucker's® now includes a variety of wholesome quality products that are found and enjoyed in homes across the country. At Smucker's®, we are committed to providing exceptional products from the highest quality ingredients. You can always be assured that the finest possible toppings are right under that lid.
