The Tale of Mr Trotter
Mr Trotter was born in 2011 from the shared passion of three pork scratching aficionados – Tom Parker Bowles, Matthew Fort and Rupert Ponsonby – and innovative pork scratching producer, Graham Jebb from RayGray Snacks.

We felt that the world deserved a better pork scratching than was currently available, and so we set out to produce one.

Mr Trotter’s Great British Pork Crackling is what it says it is - made in Britain from British pigs, which are raised to significantly higher welfare standards, and which, in most met cases, are free range.

95% of other scratchings produced in the UK are made from the rind of the 70,000 pigs that are culled each week by Denmark's bacon industry. These are 25 week old mainly Large White pigs.

Standard scratchings are made from the rind and underlying fat from the pigs' shanks (back legs) above the ankle, just two strips a mere 60–75mm long by 18mm wide by 4–6mm thick.

But because of Mr Trotter’s unique cooking method, we can use rind from other parts of the pig. That means less wastage.

Cooked in the traditional way, rind from the rest of the pig produces scratchings that are too hard a bite.

Mr Trotter’s Great British Pork Crackling is triple-cooked to produce a crunchier, punchier, porkier crackling.

And finally, it’s sprinkled with Mr Trotter's special seasonings - yeast and sea salt to produce the Original, Jalapeno for a zing of heat and perfectly potent English Mustard - what's next? Whatever flavour will bring variety to porky perfection.

Even the most devoted pork scratching lover likes a change occasionally. So firstly we developed Mr Trotter’s Proper Potato Crisps, made from local potatoes and cooked in extra virgin rapeseed oil both produced on the same farm.

Then most recently Mr Trotter’s Great British Pork Crunch – a lighter bite in every way. Potently porky. Explosively crunchy. British to the very last munch. Specially prepared from 100% British rind, hot flashed and with just a touch of Mr Trotter's own Original seasoning, it has an airy delicacy, a fluffy crispness, an etherial porkiness. And, we have to add, a much lighter mouthful.

But Mr Trotter isn’t going to stop there. We’ll be launching further products in the near future guided by the same fanatical devotion to quality. When it comes to the crunch, it has to be Mr Trotter.
