Did you know that Baxters Food, started in Fochabers by George Baxter in 1868 was the first to use twist-off caps on their jars? The company was launched with the help of a £100 loan from Baxter’s uncle, initially a grocery shop then branching into supplying preserves to other grocers. It is still based in Fochabers, headed by the great-granddaughter of the founder.
