Fortnum and Mason Greetings Card
Charles Fortnum worked as a footman in the royal household. Every night the queen asked for fresh candles, and so the enterprising Mr Fortnum kept the old ones, and sold them for a profit!
He turned his businesslike mind to groceries and persuaded his landlord Hugh Mason, to join him in trade. Fortnum and Mason went on to become world a famous food emporium, and influenced British tastebuds for centuries to come. It invented the scotch egg as a portable food for travellers and was the first shop in the country to sell Heinz Baked Beans. But it is best known for its exquisitely packaged luxuries..especially the iconic wicker hampers.
