About Marshalls

Some say we eat, sleep and dream Macaroni. For over 100 years we’ve been Britain’s REAL macaroni experts.
And now we have cooked up something really special.

We know life is busy, and rustling up a tasty Mac ‘n’ Cheese takes a while, so we got thinking. We used all our skills and know how to create a great tasting Mac ‘n’ Cheese that’s ready to eat in just 5 minutes.

So it’s a fasta pasta. Ahem.

Forget the pots and pans, the prep time and the washing up – you just need hot water and a fork.

Snacaroni. 100 years in the making, 5 minutes to prepare.

Where did it all begin?

James had a long and successful career in the flour merchants and mills of Glasgow, becoming one of the first food producing pioneers to sell pre-packaged products. By partnering with his engineer brother Thomas, the brothers harnessed their creativity and food producing knowhow to take Marshalls to another level – making versatile, quality products for Scottish families.

What really tipped James Marshall into milling stardom was his invention of Farola, a finely-milled Semolina perfect for making baked goods such as shortbreads. So successful was Farola, that it was purchased and used by the Princess of Wales’ household.

130 years on and countless awards later, Marshalls continues to make versatile, quality products – not just for Scotland but for families across the nation. Throughout the last century we have remained at the cutting edge of pasta technology, innovating and developing the finest pasta and pasta derived products. We have done this whilst keeping true to Marshalls tradition and ethos of quality, versatile food - running a pasta business James Marshall would have been truly proud of.

Of our 130 years of milling, 2019 stands to be our most exciting year yet – with three brand new innovative products on the horizon. We are proud to combine cutting edge innovation with the traditional brand values that kept James Marshall at the top of his game, and continue to serve us just as well today.
