W&R Jacob was founded by two Quaker brothers, William and Robert, in Waterford, Ireland in 1851. Shortly afterwards the firm relocated to Peter’s Row, Dublin.

A fire completely destroyed their factory in 1880. The firm completely rebuilt and extended the site, and installed new machinery.

W&R Jacob had introduced “American Crackers” by 1881.

W&R Jacob introduced the cream cracker in 1885. The new product was to quickly prove a great success.
