The John Morrell company was started over 180 years ago in Bradford, England. Founder George Morrell grew up in poverty, and in 1827, at the age of 39, he received a small inheritance. In 1830, he began curing hams and bacon, and before long Morrell’s Yorkshire Hams and Bacon had become the best meat available in Great Britain.
In 1842, John Morrell (George’s son) took over leadership of the thriving company, and by 1864 John Morrell had established operations in both Ireland and the United States.
Today, John Morrell offers a wide array of quality meats including hardwood smoked bacon, smoked sausage, home style-carved lunch meats and hot dogs.
When the Paolantonio brothers founded Colonial Knife and created its first pocket knife in 1926, the three knew it was destined to become an industry standard. Today, Colonial is proud to manufacture the highest quality in precision cutlery. Colonial offers a lifetime warranty … a jesture of their quality initiatives, and confidence.
