Duchy Originals from Waitrose, the organic shortbread and biscuits brand founded by HRH Prince Charles the Prince of Wales, has expanded distribution to include Whole Foods Market. Now available in 35 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.
“Whole Foods’ commitment to sustainable agriculture and organic food mirrors our own values, and we are pleased to be able to offer our organic products to Whole Foods Market customers,” said President of Walkers Shortbread, Inc., Steve Dawson. “In a speech on May 27th, HRH Prince Charles challenged businesses to act as custodians of the Earth and architects of the well-being of current and future generations, and I believe Whole Foods, Walkers Shortbread and Duchy Originals seek to do exactly that.”
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 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 USDA organic 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.
The brand supports a number of worthwhile causes through The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation. A donation from the sale of each Duchy Originals product is given to the Foundation, which raised more than $4.6 million last year.
