Allens, Inc., a family-owned and operated vegetable processor, remains focused on the same core values that were set when the company was founded. Allens, Inc. began as Allen Canning Company in 1926 near Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Earl Allen started the company and helped it survive The Great Depression and severe droughts of the 1930s. Earl's son Delbert took over leadership in the forties and helped to expand production while providing canned vegetables to our troops during World War II. The growth and expansion continued as more items were added to Allens' product line and state of the art facilities enhanced productivity. During the seventies, growth allowed for the purchase of other companies and brands like Popeye Brand Spinach.
