Biscuit Factory

Hi Lachlan. Yes the biscuit factory in Peffermill Road was Mitchelhill's Healthy Life Biscuit Factory. It was built in 1937 and sold to House of Fraser in 1964 after the bread and cake making side of the business was moved into the extended premises in about 1959. I think (not certain) Frasers sold the premises to United Biscuits, operating as Simmers. I believe the premises now produce oatcakes which have been manufactured there since 1966 approx after another business, Capital Oatcakes, was closed and the production moved to Aberdeenshire.
