The company began as a privately held company. In the early days it became a subsidiary of Iroquois Brands before reverting to private ownership under the Jerry Allen family in 1978.
Mr. Gerald Allen began his career in the industry for Trophy Brands in 1959, after graduating from the University of Dayton.
1968 Mr. Allen founded Allen Food Products Inc.
1977 Allen Food Products, Inc. bought the Trophy line of packaged nuts from Iroquois Brands.
The 70’s brought growth to the organization. During that time we launched Trophy brand tube line and moved to our current location.
The two-story federalist style building built in 1869 flanks the bed of the Miami and Erie Canal. The building has been home to manufacturers since 1869. Originally built to house the Ford and Company Wheel Works where wheelwrights hammered out wooden wheels for cannon carriages, caissons, supply wagons, and troop carriers. While the exterior of the building does not appear to have changed over the years, the interior is continually modernized.
