- About us
Ask anyone here at Burton’s Biscuit Company what we’re most passionate about and you’ll get the same answer from everyone – the baking of quality biscuits for the whole family to enjoy.
We’re the only major biscuit manufacturer in the UK to focus solely on biscuits and this dedication has helped us become one of the key players in the market. We employ over 2,200 people around the UK, in three main manufacturing facilities in Llantarnam, Edinburgh and Blackpool, a chocolate refinery in Moreton and central distribution hub in Liverpool. Our head office is based in St. Albans.
Since 2009 the company has been owned by CIBC and Apollo Global Management, and in recent years it has adapted to the demands of a challenging economic climate to become a much more efficient and agile organisation.
Our forward-thinking strategy has led to some impressive results. Burton’s Biscuit Company has delivered against its financial expectations over the past few years, achieving annual sales of over £340 million and continuing to grow our market share quarter after quarter. We were also recently awarded “Export Success of the Year” (Oct 2012) at the Food and Drink Federation’s Community Partnership Awards. Awarded by the leading industry body of the food and drink sector, the top accolade recognises Burton’s Biscuit Company’s continued international development over the past twelve months.
Our success and continued growth depends entirely on the talented people who work for us. We aim to recruit and retain the very best in the business.
