Our journey from a husband and wife team selling home baked oatcakes in Rutherglen, Scotland, to one of our country's best known independent food companies would have been beyond even the wildest dreams of Mr and Mrs Paterson as they started out in the 1895.

Today, our master bakers combine traditional methods with today's technology and resources to make your favourite products. Our success is built on a simple formula: quality food from clean, sustainable ingredients.

Our company might have a different look from when it was conceived nearly 120 years ago, but one thing remains constant - the immense pride our employees take in being part of its ongoing traditions.

We care about the environment and are committed to achieving sustainability across our business to help protect the planet for future generations. Actions include removing palm oil from our oatcake range in 2002; lifetime membership of the Borneo Orangutan Foundation; cutting down on waste and energy use (ahead of Climate Change Agreement targets) and more recycling. We have been awarded with the prestigious ISO14001 accreditation for environmental management and commended at the VIBE Scotland awards (Vision in Business for the Environment).

If you have any questions or comments about any of our products we'd love to hear from you!
