Overview:Here at United Biscuits, we are best known for manufacturing simple wholesome pleasures. We have over 7000 employees globally, operating in 23 sites, across 6 countries worldwide.
We are best known for our unrivalled portfolio of brands that have been enjoyed for over 100 years; McVitie’s, Jacob’s, Carr’s, McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes, Mini Cheddars, go ahead!, BN, Verkade, Sultana and Delacre. The passion for baking and expertise traces back to the McVitie family’s store, in Edinburgh in 1830. The McVitie family’s flair for baking became hugely popular and expanded into full scale manufacturing. However, it wasn’t until the merger of two family businesses - McVitie & Price and Macfarlane Lang - in 1948, whereby United Biscuits began.
Not only do we have core markets in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Belgium and Ireland, we also have a growing international business, serving customers in North America, the Middle East, Africa and Australia.
Built into the very fabric of UB, is our drive for long-term sustainability. We pursue this by delivering consistently on our promise to consumers and customers, developing and engaging actively with our employees, continuously delivering superior financial results, minimising environmental impact and interacting with communities in which we operate - investing in the future whilst delivering results today.
