By 1984, 95% of packaged dry beans sold in New Orleans were Camellia Brand. History: Sawyer Hayward came to New Orleans from the West Indies in 1850, starting in the cotton business, but then expanding to source other items. He supplied produce and dry goods to other vendors in the French Market. The large population of other immigrants from the Caribbean created demand for beans, and a business was born.
In 1923, L.H. Hayward and Company moved into an old cotton plant on Poydras Street and South Front Street, which is now Convention Center Boulevard. The company was named Camellia after the favorite flower of the wife of L.H. Hayward Jr. Around 1940, when supermarkets were becoming popular, William Gordon Hayward, son of L.H. Jr., came up with the revolutionary idea to package beans in individual bags for consumers - and those bags are now a staple in many a New Orleans kitchen. In 1974, the company moved to a larger facility in Elmwood, where it still operates today.
