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.


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


Mr Trotter’s Great British Pork Crackling is what it says it is - made in Britain from British pigs and European pigs. The British pigs are raised to Red Tractor/BQAP standards; and the EU/Danish pigs are ‘Danish Product Standard’.


Nearly all pork 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.

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

But Mr Trotter’s Great British Pork Crackling is triple-cooked to produce a crunchier, punchier, porkier crackling and lighter texture. And because of Mr Trotter’s unique triple cooking method, we can use rind from other parts of the pig. That means less wastage, and maybe even more variety of texture and flavour.

Finally, it’s sprinkled with Mr Trotter's own very special seasonings - yeast and sea salt to produce his three pork cracklings: His ‘Original’, his ‘English Mustard’ and his ‘Jalapeno Chilli’, with its deliciously fiery zing.’ - 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 ethereal porkiness. And, we have to add, a much lighter mouthful.
