Maker A. Schilling & Company

Maker Details A. Schilling & Company was an American foodstuffs company founded in San Francisco, California, in 1881 by August Schilling and George F. Volkmann, both natives of Bremen, Germany who had migrated to America and were then both aged 27. It dealt in coffee, tea, baking powder, extracts, and spices and was merged into McCormick & Company in 1946.[1] McCormick continued to use the Schilling name for its Western division until the 1990s. The last product containers marked Schilling were produced in 2002.
