Bakers Kips Biscuits are soft, yet crunchy, savoury treats that’s sure to get tongues wagging in more ways than one.
Bakers actually goes all the way back to 1740, where the biscuits were basically ‘born at sea’. Known as ‘hard tack’, these rations formed a part of every naval officer’s diet. Jump forward in time to 1851 and Johann Friedriech Baumann docks in Durban. As a baker with a vision, he starts Baumann & Co. After having his cousin join him from London – and buying some fancy equipment – the Baumann’s introduces the Marie Biscuit in 1885, with Tennis following in 1991. Following the war in 1915, the company changed it’s name to Bakers Limited. 5 years later and two more factories, the little, iconic baker’s man comes along in 1923. The rest is history, as they say. Now, Bakers is known as a household name with an impressive range, including Bakers Kips Biscuits.
