CONNECTIONS

Meet our Members

We are delighted to have Baxters on board as a corporate member of The Marketing Society. Baxters is one of Scotland’s iconic brands. Family owned and managed since 1868 it has dedicated itself to creating high quality products over four generations growing from a humble village store to a global brand. Just as they carefully hand-select their ingredients to get the best products including their famous jams and soups the same is true for all the people they work with. Their extended Baxters family share the same ethos. "Be different, be better."

Lorraine Rothwell is their Marketing Director and is based at their Charlotte Square offices in Edinburgh.
