Our Company

The Zook Molasses Company


The Zook Molasses Company started back in 1934 by M. Simon Zook filling a need for farmers to feed their livestock with quality molasses. Ever since, Zook Molasses has been serving the agricultural industry with conventional and organic liquid and dried feeding molasses. This is a great source for energy, dry matter and improved digestibility. The Zook Molasses company also provides conventional and organic Soy oil as well as other non-GMO products. They also are a distributor for flavoring ingredients, lick tubs, and deer blocks.

Good Food, Inc.

Located in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, Good Food, Inc. was founded in 1980 by M. Simon Zook’s daughter and son-in-law Sally and Larry Martin. Already seasoned business entrepreneurs in food service distribution, they sought to expand the family business, Zook Molasses Company.

As the company grew, so did the scope of cooking and baking supplies sold. The company’s experience with molasses blending led to almost 200 different liquid blends of various liquid sweeteners and syrups packed in retail, food service and bulk tanker loads.

Along with Mrs. Schlorer’s, the famous Golden Barrel line is under the corporate umbrella of Good Food, Inc. since 1980 and includes kosher baking ingredients like baking mixes, syrups, molasses, and cooking oils as found on this website.
