Duchy Originals from Waitrose, the all-natural shortbread and biscuits brand founded by Prince Charles the Prince of Wales, has expanded product distribution to include Raley’s, Nob Hill Foods and Bel Air stores. Now available in 119 more Northern California retail locations, the Duchy Originals shortbread varieties and Oaten Biscuits are baked by the world famous and family-owned Walkers Shortbread in the Scottish Highlands.
“We are thrilled to be working with Raley’s, Nob Hill Foods and Bel Air to offer Duchy products to their shoppers,” said President of Walkers Shortbread, Inc., Steve Dawson. “This reflects consumers’ increasing desire to purchase and serve foods that not only taste good, but are also kind to the environment.”
The Duchy Originals line comprises four distinctive varieties of rich shortbread and savory biscuits that are ideal for entertaining, special events or as an everyday treat. The Highland All Butter Shortbread is luxuriously rich, smooth and delicious while the Lemon All Butter Shortbread features zesty Sicilian lemons making it an especially refreshing indulgence. The Stem Ginger All Butter Shortbread is made with Australian Buderim Ginger that provides a unique spicy sweetness, and the Original Oaten Biscuits are both savory and sweet to the taste and are delicious on their own or paired with cheeses and spreads.
Staying true to the Duchy Originals Good Food Charter that every product “Is Good”, “Does Good” and “Tastes Good”, all Duchy shortbread and biscuits are made with the finest natural ingredients using sound animal husbandry and traditional crop rotation. All ingredients include no genetically modified organisms (GMOs), are OU Kosher and suitable for vegetarians, and no antibiotics or bovine growth hormones are used to produce the butter used in Duchy recipes. Duchy strives for the smallest environmental footprint possible by using more locally sourced, seasonal ingredients and less packaging and other waste.
