Johnsons began business in 1893 selling and distributing grocery and imported goods at a time when Belfast streets were filled with horse-drawn carts, and in 1913 started roasting fine coffees for sale into local grocery stores, cafes, hotels and restaurants. A few years later, it began its banking relationship with Bank of Ireland, one which has flourished over the last 93 years.
The company recently increased its production capacity by 30% following the installation of a new packaging line and they have employed additional staff to cope with increased orders from a customer base locally, in Great Britain and as far away as the United States of America & Dubai.
