Inspiring great meals from prepared foods since 1924

1924 – 2017

Apr 21st, 2017

Roberts of Port Dinorwic was founded in 1924. We are now a 4th generation family business. Since 1924 we have been working with organisations to create delicious high-standard meals for our customers. With a new birthday for the company approaching we were wondering what was happening in 1924:

  • George V as monarch
  • Stanley Baldwin as Prime Minister then Ramsey MacDonald
  • Meteorological Office issues its first shipping forecast
  • Margaret Bondfield becomes the first woman to be appointed a government minister
  • Winter Olympics held in Chamonix, France
  • John Logie Baird sends rudimentary television pictures over a short distance
  • Olympics held in Paris
  • George Mallory and Andrew Irvine last seen as “going strong for the top” of Mount Everest, never seen alive again
  • Harold Abrahams wins 100m gold in Paris in atime of 10.6 seconds
  • First BBC broadcast by George V opening the British Exhibition at Wembley Stadium
  • Sunday Express first newspaper to publish a crossword
  • Mr. Thomas Roberts makes his first pork pie!
