History (1990-2012)

One of the first website's to offer a complete line of herbs and natural remediesIn the mid 1990's, we developed one of the first websites to offer a complete line of herbs and natural remedies. Although there are many websites offering herbs today, often you cannot be sure of who you are dealing with - and the reputation of the company. Be assured that when you order from Penn Herb Company Ltd., whether by mail, fax, phone or online, you will receive the same high quality herbs, spices and natural remedies our customers have known and trusted since 1924.

A new facility was purchased and opened in 1995To meet the demands of ever-increasing business and assure we could meet our customer's needs in the future, a new facility in Northeast Philadelphia was purchased and opened in 1995, while retaining our retail store at 603 North 2nd Street. This 46,000 square foot building has provided us with the necessary room for further expansion, better efficiency, and improved quality control. The offices, order-taking and customer service departments have been greatly expanded and updated. Additionally, modern herb processing facilities have been installed with the latest cutting, sifting, packaging, bottling and encapsulation equipment. Our shipping department has been enlarged to enable prompt and efficient shipping worldwide of many orders daily.
