JC Watson Company - 100 Year Legacy


Company History

JC Watson Company is a fourth generation produce company established in southwestern Idaho in 1912. The Produce Reporter Co., listing for this company denotes TRADING MEMBER status since 1929, which makes JC Watson Company one of the longest-established TRADING MEMBERS in the produce industry, and the only onion shipper in the 75–year plus category. Major production, packing, and marketing of sweet Spanish onions have been the Company’s main endeavors for over ninety years.

Evolving for 100 yearsFeatured in "The Packer" - July 2012

As of 2005, JC Watson Company began focusing its efforts solely on the production, packing, and marketing of premium onions. The company packs for several private labels, in addition to their own Watson Brand, Soo Brand, SooRing, Jim’s Best, Trail Blazer and Treasure Valley labels.

In January 2010 the Watson family announced the creation of two additional companies, JC Watson Packing Company and Watson Agriculture Inc.  JC Watson Packing Company will focus on the packing, selling, and shipping of onions while Watson Agriculture Inc. will focus on growing and producing a sound, superior onion for our customers.  We believe that this change will allow for growth in both areas, and give us the ability to better serve our customers.

JC Watson Company offers state of the art equipment in all facets of growing, storage and packing, including photo-assisted computer sizing. Our greatest strengths are our outstanding reputation for quality and integrity, and our willingness to constantly meet the needs of a diversified customer base.
