Where it Started
The story of Marshalls Foods is one deeply rooted in Scottish heritage and an unwavering commitment to quality, beginning over 130 years ago in 1885 when brothers James and Thomas Marshall began their historic Scottish partnership, with a vision to create delicious, high-quality food for Scottish families using only the finest ingredients sourced from local farms.
James, with his expertise in the flour merchants and mills of Glasgow, and Thomas, with his engineering know-how, harnessed their creativity and passion for food to create a food dynasty that has stood the test of time. In 1885, they were pioneers in the pre-packaged food industry, becoming one of the first food producers to sell pre-packaged products, using their skills and knowledge to take Marshalls to new heights.
130 years on and countless awards later, Marshalls continues to make versatile, quality products – not just for Scotland but for families across the nation.
Throughout the last century, we have remained at the cutting edge of pasta technology, innovating and developing the finest pasta and pasta-derived products. We have done this whilst keeping true to Marshalls’ tradition and ethos of quality, versatile food – running a pasta business James Marshall would have been truly proud of.
