In 1949, the firm of Rowland Smith & Son, managed by Messrs. R.W. Smith and R.R. Smith, imported various products into Great Britain under their brand Ye Olde Oak. After years of rationing druing World War II, the people started to desire quality and new ideas for meals again. The reputation of Ye Olde Oak grew fast and it became synonymous with products of consistently high quality.
Ye Olde Oak produces the UK’s number 1 Hot Dogs and Canned Meats.
The Hot Dogs come in a range of sizes to suit all tastes from the standard 400g and popular Jumbo 560g through to the massive glass jar American 1030g. There are different flavours too, including BBQ and Fiery Chilli, alongside our standard and American recipes.
Canned meats include our market leading 300g Ham and delicious Finest Gammon, that’s available in a traditional 340g pear shaped. We also have to add to our delicious canned meats Corned Beef in 200g to complete our line-up.
