Ryvita is a rye-based crispbread which until 2009 was manufactured by The Ryvita Company. The company was founded in Birmingham, England, in 1930 and is today a subsidiary of Associated British Foods. Ryvita crackers are popular with dieters. Ryvita are holders of a royal warrant granted by Queen Elizabeth II as 'Manufacturers of Crispbreads'.

History[edit]

In 1925, the Ryvita company was established, with a bakery set up in Birmingham two years later, producing one of the first packaged goods in the bakery field. After the Second World War, Poole on the South Coast of England was selected as a desirable site for production due to its nearby port.

In 1949, Garfield Weston bought the Ryvita Company, and began a close personal involvement with the parent company, Associated British Foods (ABF). A new mill was opened by Bernard Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein in 1968. The original bakery expanded in 1971 and again in 1974, making the largest single building span in Europe at the time. Ryvita became part of the Jordans & Ryvita brand under Associated British Foods following a merger with Jordans in early 2009.[1]
