The originator of the Jacob’s brand name was the small biscuit bakery, W & R Jacob, founded in 1851 in Bridge Street, Waterford, Ireland by William Beale Jacob and his brother Robert. It later moved to Bishop Street in Dublin, Ireland, with a factory in Peter’s Row. A factory in Aintree, Liverpool was opened in 1914. The factory produces over 55,000 tonnes of products each year. In the UK, the brand name is used under license by United Biscuits, part of Pladis. The Cream Crackers are baked not fried, with only the finest ingredients and freshly packed for crispy goodness, this firm favourite can be enjoyed with any toppings of your choosing.
