In 2006, Walkers announced that the bakery in Aberlour would be closing and turning into a research facility for the company.
The company has received the Queen's Award for Export Achievement three times, "the highest accolade given to British exporters." Walkers Shortbread is also still owned and managed by the Walker family.
In 2017 Walkers Shortbread was granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment from Her Majesty The Queen for the supply of Shortbread to the Royal Household. Walkers Oatcakes had previously received the Royal Warrant in 2002.
In 2018 the company's profits were diminished by a global increase in the price of butter by around 50% due to global supply shortages and demand increases, resulting in the company seeing a 60% drop in operating profit.
