We love a brand which has a long family history behind it. It shows a commitment to the product and ensures that great tasting recipes are never lost or forgotten. For this months blog we wanted to celebrate one of those brands!
Duncan’s of Deeside is a third generation family company who have won multiple awards for their delicious produce. It was Grandmother Elizabeth who first inspired the family business, baking mouth watering shortbread and oatcakes for her family and friends. Handing down her traditional recipes, the family has expanded and developed the product range to suit the demands of a new generation of customers.
Their first bakery was in a forest, at the foot of the Cairn O’Mount mountain in Royal Deeside. The company has made a recent move to premises in Laurencekirk, where they can reach a wider market in the UK and also overseas where their popularity is growing. The hand-baked goods are already being sent as far afield as Australia, confirming a need for high quality snacks which have the personal family touch.
The team at Duncan’s of Deeside are passionate and committed to creating wonderfully tasting baked goods that have been made from only the finest ingredients. There is a wealth of experience in the bakery, from a strong crew who take real pride in their abilities. Every batch that is taken from the oven to the shelf is closely monitored and only the very best will make it through.
