About Watkins

History of Watkins

1868 - The Watkins company was about to begin! Jospeh Ray Watkins, working out of his home, produced a natural pain relieving liniment which was to become a staple with the Watkins products. This one of a kind pain relieve contained camphor and capsicum to provide pain relief for tired, aching muscles. 


As the company grew, more products were formulated and introduced. In 1895 the award winning Watkins Vanilla, Pepper and Cinnamon were introduced and were a big hit! The company will build additional manufacturing buildings as it continued to grow.


1919 - As WWII approached Watkins focused on producing products for government contracts. Such items included dried eggs, powdered juices, vitamins, hospital germicide and insecticide powder. 


1951 - The year Bill Porter began his career. Who is Bill Porter you may ask? He was the famous 'Watkins Man', going door-to-door selling his goods despite his crippling cerebral palsy. Over 50 years as a Watkins consultant, Bill inspired many others and would later be featured in many new stories and even the television show "Door to Door".


2006 - Watkins begins to reformulate some of it's baking and food products in it's effort to provide truly natural products.
