The end?
In 1991 the head office of the Jacob's Bakery move from King's Road to premises in Suttons Business Park. Jacob's stops producing biscuits under the Huntley & Palmers brand. Then, in 1996, Jacob's head office moves from Reading to Liverpool. But while H&P is no longer a Reading company, in 2004 the brand is relaunched after being sold by Danone to a new company.
