Colgin® - The Company
In 1938, S.E. Colgin was granted a patent for Smoke Flavoring Condiments #2129047. After his death, Dick carried on the family business until refrigerated warehouses became popular in the 1940's. This spelled the decline of home meat curing. Dick resourcefully experimented and improved his liquid smoke formula to the one we use today.
In 1945, the Richard E. Colgin Company, Inc. was founded in Dallas, Texas, where it grew under the auspicious direction of Dick Colgin until his death in 1971. Afterwards, his daughter, Louise Colgin Pryor, and her husband, Gene H. Pryor, took over the company management. Today, Elizabeth Gardner, Dick's granddaughter and her husband, Mark Gardner, run The Colgin Companies as it is now known.
Colgin produces liquid smoke products that are the best solution for adding smoky flavor to your food. Colgin liquid smoke products do not contain preservatives / additives, gluten and animal by-products, so it is still suitable for vegetarians and Vegans.
