250 Years of Terry's

250 Years of Terry's

Details

Terry’s of York was established in the city in 1767 by partners Bayldon and Berry who opened a shop in the city selling lozenges, comfits and other simple confectionary before being joined in the 19th century by unlikely apothecary, Joseph Terry. Luckily, experience in sugaring pastilles and pills meant that Mr Terry adapted easily to a career in confectionery and his scientific background made him a pioneer of new products and a precise attitude to quality.

It was this quality and innovation which made the company famous. By the 20th century Terry’s had introduced the world to the boxed chocolate assortment as well as one of the world’s most iconic confectionery: The Terry’s Chocolate Orange!

250 Years of Terry’s will open on March at York’s Chocolate Story and will showcase a selection of the most interesting of the Terry’s products from opium based throat sweets to some of the most beautiful and decadent chocolate boxes in history.

The exhibition will also explore the social impact on the city. Terry’s has inspired Lord Mayors, horse races and iconic architecture as well as the lives of the tens of thousands of residents who have worked for the company.
