Made in Britain The Best of Quintessentially British Companies (ebook) - "Like beans on toast, big red buses and cups of tea, there are some things that are just plain British. But with global brands on the up and up, is it still possible to buy British? Which consumer products are still made in the UK? Made in Britain gives potted histories and fascinating photographs from days gone by of businesses such as:
• Marshall amplifiers, founded in London in 1962 and loved by Jimi Hendrix. • Morgan cars, whose output of nine cars a week is still assembled by hand; they will be celebrating 100 years of fast living in 2009. • Cadbury, opened in Birmingham in 1824 by a young Quaker, purveyors of such beloved chocolatey essentials as the Creme Egg and the Flake.
Some companies are household names, others are newer or more unusual. With Burberry closing British factories and moving part of its production to China amongst media outcry, and the main supermarket chains importing a quarter of their groceries, we all want to know whether our trusty British Weetabix and Marmite are still as British as we think.
For the nostalgic, the patriotic and those who want to reduce their carbon footprint, this fascinating book will delight and surprise.
