A little history…
McVitie’s is a global brand present in over 100 countries with a strong heritage in the UK.
The McVitie’s story began in 1830 by an apprentice baker named Robert McVitie, born in Scotland in 1809. Robert, along with his father William, established a very successful bakery business and 160 years later, McVitie’s continues to remain a firm favourite and is among the best known brands in the UK.
McVitie’s Digestives, Jaffa Cakes and Hobnobs are just a few of our popular brands. Within the UK, McVitie’s Chocolate Digestives is the number one brand in sweet biscuits.*
McVitie’s was launched in France in 2009 and since has been a huge success, with figures showing that McVitie’s products were purchased by over two million household consumers.**
