Our Family History
Our story begins in 1915, when a Russian immigrant by the name of Julius Silvert founded the company after educating himself about the food industry in an agricultural school in New Jersey. He began the business through an opportunity of buying and selling products like eggs and butter through his storefront operation on Lancaster Avenue. As the business started to grow, Julius began to process bulk quantities into sellable portions for retail and larger quantities to some of the biggest names in the wholesale industry in the Philadelphia area.
The company has seen tremendous growth over the past 25 years. The company has been passed down over 4 generations and is now owned and run by the Sorkin family who have continued to evolve JSI into the 21st century with technology and a state of the art facility.
