The Boericke and Tafel company is one of the oldest and most respected Homeopathic companies in the world. Invited by Dr. Hering to manufacture Homeopathic
remedies, in 1853 Francis E. Boericke and Adolph J. Tafel founded
the Boericke and Tafel company in the United States.
Within 10 years or so, they had opened pharmacies in Pennsylvania, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., Minneapolis,
Chicago and Cincinnati. They served some of the most famous
physicians of their era, including Christopher
Hering and James Kent.
