About Us

Gordon Arnett’s ‘The Cake Shop’, in the pretty Yorkshire town of Beverley, first opened its doors in 1946 and from then, a family of bakers was born. Some 60 years later, Moordale Foods, owned by the latest generation  of the Arnett family, acquired the Cartwright & Butler brand.  Seeing the boundless potential in this luxury teatime treats brand, they  set about turning it into a household name, not only here, but now in over 40 countries worldwide.
From the prestigious shelves of Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty and Harvey Nichols to those serving a more local clientele, Cartwright & Butler  can be found in the farm shops, delicatessens, tourist destinations and independent stores the length and breadth of the country.
