Howard Foods was founded by John F. Howard in the early 1890s in Haverhill, MA. His first product was Salad Crème, not relish.
In 1900 the Howard’s products were awarded the Grand Prix at the International Exhibition in Paris for purity and quality.
1924-1926: Mr. Howard sold Howard Foods and it was combined with a pickle, relish and condiment company across the river from Haverhill.
Howard Foods has moved from Haverhill to Methuen to Woburn to Manchester, NH, and is now again a Massachusetts company with offices and manufacturing plant in New Hampshire.
Howard Foods has been owned by John Labatt Ltd of Canada and Campbell Soup Company (Canada).
The basic relish recipes have never been changed, and there are still a few customers who were children when the Howard products were sold from a wheelbarrow by Mr. Howard, and say they are as good now as they were then.
