Proudly started in Yorkshire, where William Jackson first opened his original shop in 1851, the William Jackson Food Group is a sixth-generation family business. Abel & Cole, Aunt Bessie’s and Jackson’s Yorkshire’s Champion are our brands enjoyed by people up and down the country. We also own Jackson’s Bakery, Hazeldene and Parripak which supply leading supermarkets, food service businesses and food manufacturers nationwide and abroad with bread, freshly prepared salad and vegetables.
We’re very true to our family values and people are unquestionably at the heart of everything we do.
We look after our own people. We respect them and appreciate their role in our success.
We also work very closely with communities local to our businesses as we believe a community should be a better place for having one of our businesses in it.
Not only do we really value our relationships with our customers and the people who buy our food, but we also put a lot of energy into building really strong links and ties with our growers and suppliers. With all our relationships we seek to ensure that the trust placed in us is justified and that those who do business with us find it enjoyable and easy.
We strive daily to live up to our ambition of being ‘a business to be proud of’ and this helps guide what we do and how we do it.
