Welcome to

Elisabeth the Chef

Elisabeth the Chef began as a little cake shop in Leamington Spa in 1928. In 1969 it opened its first manufacturing plant and began to supply high class retailers such as Harrods and Fortnum & Mason. The Chesterfield family owned and operated the business until 1979 when it was acquired by United Biscuits, who later sold it to the Owen family. Today Elisabeth the Chef is a leading manufacturer of branded and own label chilled bakery products, cream cakes, hot puddings and desserts.
