November 2020: Kingswood Memories

The company was founded by Thomas Edward Lucas in 1926, and was the first to manufacture yeastless rusk – a purpose designed cereal binder for butchers who had previously used returned stale bread for their sausages. 

The company was taken over by Kerry Foods and moved production to a new site at Portbury, near Avonmouth.

Kingswood Heritage Museum would like to create a new display featuring the Lucas factory in Kingswood.
