ABOUT GEORGE ROMNEY LIMITED

Joseph Wiper is said to have produced the first batch of Kendal Mint Cake by mistake in 1869, whilst making a batch of clear mints he took his eye off the pan and the mixture had become cloudy…Kendal Mint Cake was born. Wiper’s continued to produce Mint Cake till 1987 when they were bought out by George Romney’s who still make the Wiper’s brand to its original recipe to this day.

George Romney’s first produced Kendal Mint Cake in 1918, the company name came from the famous 18th century artist that had lived in the Cumbrian town of Kendal. Kendal Mint Cake was seen as a great energy source that would remain stable in extreme conditions, because of this it became a staple of many early 20th century expeditions but it’s most famous moment came when Sir Edmund Hillary and Sirdar Tenzing carried it on the first successful summit of Mount Everest on the 29th May 1953. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and remains a firm favourite of adventurers worldwide.

George Romney Ltd. was first started in 1918 by Mr. Sam T. Clarke, grandfather of the present managing director Mr. Shane Barron, the third generation who is now handing over to his son John Barron, the fourth generation. Mr Clarke started out as a sweet wholesaler when he was invalided out of the 1914-1918 war, and when he was unable to obtain supplies of Kendal Mint Cake during the summer of 1919 he purchased an old recipe and started manufacturing in Leightons Yard, Highgate. This was later moved to Waterside Works and then to a purpose built factory on the Mintsfeet Industrial Estate. The name George Romney came from the well known portrait painter and also, the family home happened to be in Romney Road
