Meet the world's leading marketer of delicious Concord and Niagara grape-based products.
The story of Welch's began in 1869 in Vineland, New Jersey – when physician and dentist Thomas Bramwell Welch and his son Charles processed the first bottles of "unfermented wine" to use during their church's communion service.
Today Welch's is the world's leading marketer of Concord and Niagara-based grape products – with over 400 items ranging from refrigerated juices and sparkling juice cocktails to jams, jellies and a variety of single-serve products in all shapes and sizes. Our headquarters is in Concord, Massachusetts – birthplace of the Concord grape. Our products are sold throughout the U.S. and in more than 35 countries and territories around the world.
At the heart of it all: our family of growers.
The National Grape Cooperative Association, Inc. acquired Welch's in 1952. A grower-owned agricultural cooperative, National Grape is comprised of 1,150 grape growers with farms throughout Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington and Ontario, Canada.
Welch's and National Grape operate under a unique two-board system. National Grape focuses on producing and delivering premium-quality grapes and we convert the grapes into the delicious products we’ve become famous for. It's a cohesive, mutually beneficial relationship – based on family tradition that shares strong generational ties to the past and present.
