I.P. Callison began in the Pacific Northwest in 1903 as a horse and buggy operation trading in cascara bark. Through two world wars, changing global supplies and shifting consumer demands, Callisons continued to innovate and thrive by embracing new business opportunities and markets. Today, Callisons is the leading supplier of mint oils and flavors in the world. And we’re constantly thinking ahead to what’s next.
