Jones brothers inducted into Baking Hall of Fame
Brothers Ron, Miles and Steve Jones, of Dawn Food Products, Inc., one of the largest, full-service, family-owned baking industry manufacturers and suppliers, were honoured for their contributions to the baking industry and ingredient technology with their induction into the Baking Hall of Fame. Steve, who passed away in 1995, was inducted posthumously. The Jones family became part of Dawn in 1935, when Marlin Jones began working for the Jackson, Mich.-based doughnut and baking mix company, founded in 1920. Dawn pioneered ready-to-use mixes for the commercial baking industry. By 1955, Marlin purchased the company, with his three sons eventually joining the business. Created by the American Society of Baking to recognize the achievements of individuals who have made outstanding contributions to commercial baking, the Baking Hall of Fame is located at the AIB International headquarters in Manhattan, Kan.
