Drivers Pickles Leicester

The Driver family has a track record matching that of Norman & Underwood when it comes to serving the people of Leicester and the Midlands. Beginning with their grocery shop in Ibstock and later moving into the centre of Leicester, Drivers has become a well-known name in the area.

The family recipes for pickles were produced and sold in their shops as early as 1902 leading to the formation of the Driver’s Pickle and Vinegar Company in 1906. Today, the fourth generation of the family still proudly continues the family tradition. You can find the Driver’s Pickled Onions, Malt Vinegar and other products in grocery shops and fishmongers around Leicester.

Versatile – aluminium can be made into many different forms and sizes. It can be used in large areas and the integral strength makes it long lasting.
