The World’s No 1 shortbread biscuit
The company was founded by Joseph Walker when he opened his village bakery in 1898. Today, his grandchildren and great grandchildren carry forward the tradition of baking the finest shortbread, biscuits, cakes and oatcakes, using his original recipes.
Over the years, the Walker family has added new products to their range, always holding dear to the values of quality and natural goodness. In fact, the founder’s personal guarantee is still carried on every pack, to confirm that Walkers products are made with only the finest ingredients obtainable.
In the heart of beautiful Speyside, in the Scottish highlands, nestles the village of Aberlour, where the Walker family has been producing the world’s finest shortbread for over a hundred years.
Walkers still bake in small batches to ensure the classic flavour and appearance for which they are famed, and are the only UK food manufacturing company to have won three Queen’s Awards for Export Achievement.
Walkers Shortbread is still baked as it always has been, using flour, pure creamery butter, sugar and salt. It is guaranteed to contain no artificial flavouring, colouring or additives.
A wide range of varieties and sizes makes Walkers the most extensive selection of pure butter shortbreads available – a favourite at home and abroad.
Walkers oatcakes are baked to a traditional recipe and made almost entirely from either coarse or fine-grained oats. Their texture and nutty flavour make them a delicious accompaniment to both sweet and savoury toppings.
Walkers Scottish fruit cakes are another firm favourite. They are packed full of succulent fruits, spices and nuts, and baked with care and patience to create a moist, home-baked texture. As with all Walkers products, they are filled with natural goodness and are free from artificial colourings and flavourings.
Just as irresistible, Walkers delicious biscuits are baked with generous helpings of fruit, spices, nuts and crunchy demerara sugar. They are perfect as a gift or a self-indulgent treat.
In its distinctive tartan packaging, Walkers range of products is packed with Scottish character, both inside and out. The very name is a sign of quality and excellence the world over.
