Careers in Biscuits
In the early 1900's Samuel Elkes opened a confectionary shop in Uttoxeter and in 1928 a purpose built biscuit factory was opened on the current site. In 1986 the company was bought by Northern Foods and was run as Elkes Biscuits, later becoming Fox’s Biscuits. It is now our Biscuits flagship site within 2 Sisters. Uttoxeter is known for the biscuit barrel and is the home of the Malted Milk biscuits along with producing Ginger biscuits, Farley's Rusks, Custard Creams, Chocolate Digestive Bars, Oaties and Digestives. We produce own label biscuits to all the major retailers including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Lidl. The factory is well established within the community and has a fantastic culture of team work, internal progression and recognition. We employ around 580 colleagues and produce on average 680 tonnes of biscuits per week.
