Here’s some fun trivia from Wikipedia!
Peek, Frean and Co was established in 1857 in Bermondsey, London, England by James Peek and George Hender Frean. In 1861, the company started exporting biscuits to Australia and later to other overseas destinations. They moved to a larger plant in Bermondsey in 1866 where they continued baking until the brand was discontinued in 1989.
In 1861, they introduced the Garibaldi biscuit. In 1910, the company introduced their first cream sandwich biscuit, now known as a Bourbon biscuit, and in 1924 they established their first factory outside the UK, in Dum Dum, India
In 1906, the Peak Frean and Co factory in Bermondsey was the subject of one of the earliest documentary films shot by Cricks and Sharp.
In 1921, Peek Frean entered into an amalgamation agreement with rival biscuit firm Huntley and Palmers, resulting in the creation of a holding company, Associated Biscuit Manufacturers Ltd. However, both biscuit firms retained their own brands and premises.
1949 saw the establishment of their first bakery in Canada. The bakery, located on Bermondsey Road in East York, Ontario, is still in production.
In Pakistan, Peek Freans products are manufactured and marketed under the company English Biscuit Manufacturers (EBM), officially established as a joint venture of Peek Freans’ operations in the country since 1965.
During the course of its life, the firm’s brand name changed from Peek, Frean and Co to Peek Frean (in the early twentieth century) and then to Peek Freans (by the 1970s, the name having been used in the possessive sense on products for many years).
