This September, Duchy Originals from Waitrose, the all-natural shortbread and biscuits brand founded by HRH Prince Charles, will celebrate its 21-year anniversary. This milestone will be commemorated at Natural Products Expo East at the Baltimore Convention Center from September 26-28 where Duchy will exhibit with Walkers Shortbread at booth #1137. The very first Duchy product, the Oaten Biscuit baked by Walkers Shortbread, went on sale in 1992. Since then, over $17 million has been raised for charitable causes worldwide.

The Duchy Originals U.S. product line comprises four distinctive varieties that are ideal for both everyday and formal entertaining. These include the savory Original Oaten Biscuits and three shortbreads: Highland All Butter Shortbread, Lemon Shortbread and Stem Ginger Shortbread.

“Each Duchy product follows the Good Food Charter in that every product ‘Is Good,’ ‘Does Good,’ and ‘Tastes Good’,” explained Steve Dawson, President of Walkers Shortbread, Inc. “We’re delighted and honored to celebrate 21 years of offering consumers elegant and traditional indulgences that are also kind to the environment.”

All Duchy shortbread and biscuits are made with the finest natural ingredients produced using sound animal husbandry and traditional crop rotation.
