Pinks, the company was founded by Edward Pink in 1860 when he was aged 33. He had moved to London from Hampshire to serve an apprenticeship with a grocer.
With a large factory in Staple Street, off Long Lane in Bermondsey, at the end of the 19th century E & T Pink were said to be the largest producers of jam in the world. No trace remains of the company today, or the factory, and the once famous brand has disappeared and remembered now mainly for a history of bad labour relations.
