Stafford Allen (1806-1889)

Stafford Allen was born in Essex, England in 1889. In 1833, Allen founded the pharmaceutical company Stafford Allen and Sons in Suffolk.

The business was involved in the production of flavors, fragrances, pure drugs and essential oils, and Allen’s company specialized in working with sandalwood oil and cloves. The company is the leading manufacturer of traditional ground spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, pepper and mace.

The company grew throughout the nineteenth century; in the decades following Allen’s death in 1889, it became a multinational corporation.

In 1964, Stafford Allen & Sons, W.J Bush and Boake, Roberts & Company merged under the aegis of Albright & Wilson, to become Bush, Boake, Allen.
