Collecting Biscuit Tins


Huntley soon realized the biscuits needed some kind of protective packaging for safe travel, so he began placing them in metal tins. This simple idea led to the formation of two companies: Huntley & Palmer, biscuit company, and Huntley, Bourne, and Stevens, a firm of biscuit tin manufacturers founded by Huntley’s son. With their success, many imitators followed them into the biscuit tin business.
