It all began in 1888 when Frederick Green, my great-great grandfather moved from London to Roath in Cardiff.
We are forever thankful to our founder, Frederick Green who was our inspiration and a true entrepreneur. His family were Millers and Corn Merchants for many years, in Hampshire close to Mottisfont Abbey on the famous River Test. When Frederick was a young man he moved to Mayfair and became involved in the dairy business in Hammersmith, home to London's Welsh dairy farmers.
He founded the Roath Park Dairy Company in 1888, in Albany Road which ran for 70 years and three generations and closed when my grandfather retired in 1958.
In 2015 we relaunched the family business, with a new twist using the names of our ancestors, founder Frederick Green and my grandfather Norman Jenks, Green & Jenks was born.
We are currently an all female business, with three directors Shirley my mother and my daughter Harriet and myself.
We are a small family business with big ideas. Every decision is made by us, every product carefully curated in line with our love for delicious food and drinks.
Now with two shops, we are very pleased to be part of the communities in both Monmouth and Cardiff and thank all our customers for your ongoing support and custom.
