A glossy coffee table style 188 page book charting the history of Rowntree’s in York starting with Mary Tuke all the way to present day under Nestlé has been produced.

The book was completed earlier this month and copies were given to 1,800 employees and contractors who work at York as a gift, bringing the 150th anniversary celebrations of Rowntree’s to an end. 

Author Alex Hutchinson is an historian with experience of the entire confectionery history of York.
