History

B&G was founded in 1889 by the Bloch and Guggenheimer families — immigrants who came to America seeking a better life.

When Bloch and Guggenheimer began selling pickles in Manhattan, the tenement-packed city streets were crowded — and hungry! There were a lot of people to feed but few places to grow the food they needed to survive.

Bloch and Guggenheimer filled that need by selling their products made from the fresh vegetables and other natural ingredients that came from the rural areas surrounding the big city. B&G continued to grow over the years because they steadfastly placed the quality of their products above all else.
 
  B&G also grew by building a large retail and food service business, and by expanding its share of the nation's largest pickle, pepper, olive and relish market. This market leadership continues today. B&G is the #1 selling brand of pickles & peppers in the NY megalopolis.

With B&G's success, the company literally wore out its New York factory, and B&G moved its pickle and pepper manufacturing to a modern 200,000 sq. ft. plant in Hurlock, Maryland in 1988,
which is in a major cucumber and pepper growing region.

B&G also purchased San-Del, “The Pepper Professionals.” San-Del markets a complete line of retail and food service pickles and peppers as well as co-packs products for specialty distributors.
 
  Our familiar jars have been a staple of grocery stores in the tri-state area for generations. The tradition of high quality standards, good manufacturing practices and efficient stock rotation established by Bloch & Guggenheimer more than 100 years ago are still our most important ingredients today.

If you know and love New York, then you know and love B&G!
