Watkins Natural Products

Joseph Ray Watkins - Founded Watkins, Inc. in 1868 from his kitchen in Plainview, MN.

Soon his production had outgrown his home. So he moved to Winona, MN which help boast the railroads that ran along the Mississippi River.

The company changed it's name to J.R. Watkins Medical Company. Which expanded the production line for things such as Petro-Carbi Salve, Cathertic Pills, Vanilla, Black Pepper and Cinnamon.

1890's - They opened branches around the country that began with San Franciso, CA. 1913 - was the first International Company in Winnipeg, Canada. 1940's - more than 135 branch offices were in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and England.
