In 1895, John Paterson founded his bakery in the Royal Burgh of Rutherglen, Scotland, where he sold his shortbread from a horse-drawn van. Now, using over 100 years of baking experience, we've created a new indulgence — shortbread baked with a combination of butter and canola (rapeseed) oil, and all-natural, sustainable ingredients that result in much lower saturated fat without compromising on quality. Paterson’s Shortbread is the brand leading shortbread in the UK. Our delicious and high-value treat offers something for every occasion, including everyday treats, gifting, out-of-home snacking and hospitality mini packs.
