Huntley & Palmer were one of the world’s most famous companies during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. They have made their reappearance after an absence of 15 years. Huntley & Palmers was founded in 1822 and came to be “The Most Famous Biscuit Company in the World.” Global trade and travel expanded during the industrial revolution and Britain developed the largest Empire the world had ever known. The famous company grow, until it became world-renowned for being “Number One in Biscuits and Second-to-None in Cakes.”
Like many of Britain’s longest-established food companies, it was started by a Quaker, a religious sect whose members were forbidden by law from entering the established professions. In this case, a man by the name of Joseph Huntley, supported by his son Thomas, opened a shop in Reading, Berkshire. From here he started selling biscuits and confectionery. After 19 successful years, he was joined by his cousin George Palmer. Together, they created a business which, at its peak, was trading in 137 countries. Huntley & Palmer’s success wasn’t just based on producing unique, top-quality products. The brand’s packaging, especially with its tins, and its advertising also achieved unsurpassed standards of excellence. The company won many gold awards at trade fairs in the decades before and after 1900.
