We really believe that with better ingredients comes better taste; priding ourselves on sourcing the very best raw materials to make the finest products available.


John Morley began trade in 1958 as a flour importer and distributer of general baker sundries.


In 1970 we began importing fruits to process to UK standards, this quickly becoming a speciality that we continue to inspect to this day.


By 1995 John Morley had excelled in the mixing and blending of dried fruit and cereal ingredients. This meant that our business could invest in an automated blending line making up to 50 tonnes of product per day.


In 2002, from a single pan, John Morley began curating a multitude of flavoursome fruit fillings, adding a brand-new and popular product category to our range.


In 2012, we transformed our current capabilities from bulk supplying with the introduction of a fully automated line; allowing our famous mincemeat to be packed into traditional glass jars which you will find on leading retail shelves.


With our proven and trusted recipes, we provide an extensive range of flavoursome filling combinations, cultivated with high quality fruits that are sourced from approved growers and farmers. We are committed to expanding our range and creating additional bespoke flavourings in line with consumer demand.
