History

Family Owned and Operated since 1921

In 1921, the late John G. Paton founded a bulk honey company in northern California and decided to give it his own name. After several years of operation on the west coast, Mr. Paton moved the business to New York in order to take advantage of the prosperous marketplaces of the northeast. John H. Paton, son of the founder, joined the company in 1929 and created the GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY blend two years later. In 1932, the GOLDEN BLOSSOM brand was introduced to the public. Through advertising and promotion far ahead of its time, GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY became a household name with market share reaching over 60 percent in the metropolitan New York market in just a few short years.

Consumers have long recognized the green and gold label, unchanged for generations, as a symbol of quality. GOLDEN BLOSSOM is composed of three honeys; extra-white clover, sage buckwheat and orange blossom. This unique blend gives GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY a distinct flavor, color and fragrance possessed by no other brand.

GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY is a product of the U.S.A. and comes entirely from U.S. beekeepers, who receive a bonus from John Paton, Inc. for the high quality honey that they provide. All GOLDEN BLOSSOM items are packed in accordance with the standards set forth by the Orthodox Union with the 24 ounce size also packed Kosher for Passover.

GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY has expanded its distribution over the years, and despite being a regional operation, is the # 2 ranked brand nationally according to both IRI and Neilsen data sources.

John Paton, Inc. is a family owned and operated company.
