About the employer

The Burton’s story is a simple one, it’s about Great British Brands and Great British Biscuits. Our history can be traced back to George Burton (born in 1829) who began baking biscuits in Leek, Staffordshire in the mid 1800’s.

In 1935 George’s grandson Joseph founded Burton’s Biscuits. Under the family’s stewardship, the Burton’s bakery grew swiftly, and our biscuits and other snack foods became staples in UK households throughout the 1900’s. The seeds of Burton's focus on quality and innovative spirit were planted early on in the company’s history as it pioneered new manufacturing processes and technologies; along with its biscuits winning numerous accolades in international taste tests.

In 2000, Burton’s Biscuit Company as we know it today was formed following the merger of the Horizon Biscuit Company Ltd. and Burton’s Gold Medal Biscuits. In 2013, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan bought Burton’s and we continued on our journey of baking great biscuits and snacks for every UK household and much further afield.

In June 2021 Burton's Biscuits Company was acquired by a Ferrero Related company. We are so proud to be part of the Ferrero group, which sells products in over 170 countries and has over 37,000 workers worldwide and a consolidated turnover of €12.3 billion (2020).
