Since Walkers Shortbread was founded in 1898 by Joseph Walker, this independent family business has constantly focused upon producing the highest quality shortbread and speciality bakery products. Now it is his grandchildren and great grandchildren that continue the tradition of fine baking that he started. In fact, the founder’s personal guarantee is still marked on every pack to confirm that Walkers products are made with only the best ingredients obtainable. Walkers products are now sold all over the world, with a strong presence in the Middle East. Though increased demand means that we’ve had to modernise our equipment, we still use the same wonderfully simple recipe that Joseph would recognise were he to visit our bakery tomorrow. It is only by baking in small batches that we can ensure that classic taste for which Walkers are famed.
