Take-over?[edit]

I believe that Huntley & Palmers has recently been taken over by Freemans Confectionery Supplies Ltd [1] and I am awaiting confirmation of this. Biscuittin (talk) 21:36, 8 October 2008 (UTC)


Huntley and Palmers and its trademarks were acquired in 2002 by two families who also valued its heritage and believed in its huge potential. One of the owners, Nigel McCrea, had formerly been marketing director of Jacobs Bakery, which owned Huntley & Palmers.

In 2008 these families have passed the baton to a new one, the Freeman family, who also have many years experience of the biscuit market and are as equally committed to the companies future. "Our aim is to return Huntley & Palmers to its position as one of the most respected biscuit companies in the world," says managing director Harry Freeman. "We'll focus on product excellence and superb packaging design to achieve this. Of course, the brand's heritage is its strength, but we aim to ensure that our packs appeal to younger and older consumers alike."

The number of products is expanding rapidly, including "When Value Matters", a range of biscuits aimed squarely at the middle-market, to complement the "When Taste Matters" range of products. 81.156.13.129 (talk) 10:28, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
