Boyajian Inc. is a company born from passion.

John Boyajian began selling a line of specialty foods to the hotels and restaurants of Greater Boston, as a way to pay for graduate school.

In 1987, drawing upon his Armenian heritage and family tradition, John made his first bottles of garlic- infused olive oil for the customers of his new retail operation in Cambridge, MA.  Not realizing the public had never before seen herb infused olive oils, the surprising response to Boyajian’s garlic infused olive oil was overwhelming, and soon the company would out-grow it’s Cambridge storefront.

Today, Boyajian Inc. resides in a 30,000 square foot state-of-the art production facility and corporate headquarters in Canton, Massachusetts.  Boasting a line of fine infused oils, bread dipping oils, vinegars, pure citrus oils, & natural flavorings and extracts, Boyajian products are regarded as “essential tools” by consumers and food professionals around the world.  Boyajian products are featured in numerous food publications, regularly appear on television cooking shows and are referenced in over 100 cookbooks.
