Joseph Walker founded the company when he opened his village bakery in 1898; 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. Though the Walker family have added many new products to their range during the last century, each and every one holds to those original values of quality and natural goodness.
Walkers products are now sold all over the world. Though increased demand means that Walkers had to modernise equipment, they still use the same wonderfully simple recipes. It is only by baking in small batches that classic taste for which Walkers are famed can be ensured. As it always has been, Walkers shortbread is made using only four ingredients: flour, pure creamery butter, sugar and salt. There are absolutely no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives.
In its distinctive tartan packaging, Walkers range of products is packed with Scottish character, both inside and out. The name Walkers is recognised as a mark of excellence the world over, a true Scottish classic.
