The Henry Jones Story
Henry Jones Foods has been proudly made in Australia since 1898. Read on to discover more about our rich, Australian history.
Sir Henry Jones was born in Hobart, Australia, and began working in George Peacock’s conserve factory when he was 13. This building is now “The Henry Jones Hotel.”
H. Jones and Company is established in Hobart but relocates to Melbourne shortly thereafter. In Melbourne, they moved into the building which is now known as the iconic “Jam Factory” where they commenced the manufacture of jams and spreads.
Henry Jones created the name, IXL. When asked what it meant, he said “I excel, in all of the products I make, it is my motto”.
The ownership of IXL changed hands through this period including over to Elder Smith Goldsbrough Mort & Co Ltd and US-based company, J.M Schmucker Co.
IXL returns to Australia after being purchased by SPC Ardmona and becomes the leading manufacturer of food spreads in Australia, based in Kyabram, Victoria.
Henry Jones Foods is re-established as an Australian business and launched a range of 50% Less Sugar conserve.
