William Jackson Food Group logo

The William Jackson Food Group (WJFG) is a long-established family business with exciting plans for the future. We started out in 1851 as a grocery shop in Hull and the business has been passed down the family line ever since, evolving and growing but staying true to its founder's sense of value for money, integrity and trustworthiness.
We have a portfolio of successful food businesses which are thriving in their market areas.

• Based in Hull, Jackson's Bakery manufactures bread for sandwich makers, restaurants and coffee shops at home and abroad in around 30 different countries. If you buy a pre-prepared sandwich when you're out and about, there is a good chance the bread has been made by us! We have also launched Jackson's Yorkshire's Champion Bread which comes in a brown, white or seeded bloomer made with wheat grown in Yorkshire, flour milled in Yorkshire and baked in our Hull bakery.

• Aunt Bessie's is the leading manufacturer of frozen Yorkshire Puddings in the UK and produces up to 20 million Yorkshire Puddings in its Hull factory every week as well as a host of other accompaniments, meals, desserts and ambient products.

• MyFresh, which is split over two sites in Wigan and Bedfordshire, is the UK's leading supplier of freshly prepared vegetables to top food manufacturers and the food service industry. They also supply fresh salad and vegetable produce to some of the UK's leading convenience retailers, foodservice and sandwich manufacturers.

WJFG strives to be a business to be proud of and has strong values which we adhere to, including consideration, integrity, commitment, openness and boldness. We are proud of our involvement in the community and actively encourage our colleagues to take part in volunteering projects. Sustainability is at the heart of what we do and we are considerate with all of our plans to make sure we can take care of tomorrow.
