When the McDougall brothers launched their ‘yeast substitute’ in 1864 and, later, a product called ‘self-raising’ flour, they revolutionised home baking.
But the innovations didn’t stop there! In 1972, the company created another new market with the UK’s first-ever baking mixes, for easy shortcrust and flaky pastry.

Today, McDougalls products are helping to make baking as convenient and as deliciously rewarding as possible. The versatility, reliability and taste of our products means the McDougalls brand is trusted by caterers from all sectors, from health and education to pubs and restaurants.
