Thomas Tunnock Ltd Food from Britain (FFB) Buyers’ Guide

“Tunnock’s Tasteful Past”

How do you create ever-popular biscuits products? Well, start with excellent ingredients. Add layers of ownership by the same, caring family. The cover with generous sprinkling of attention to detail and personal service.

This winning formula was initiated by Thomas Tunnock in 1890 after he paid £80 for a shop in Uddingston. Under the guidance of Thomas (and later his son, Archie), Tunnock’s operated only as bakers and purveyors of quality flour confectionery until the 1950s. This decade saw the emergence of four speciality items: Caramel Wafers, Snowballs, Caramel Logs and Teacakes. Conqeuently, business boomed and factory extentions followed, the latest as recent as 2002.

The innovative management has always remainded true to the original principles and is close to the local community. Indeed, it is funny how the more things change at Tunnock’s, the more they stay the same.
