Baxters is an international food company, based in Fochabersmarker, Scotlandmarker. It has its roots in a grocer's shop opened by George Baxter in 1868. Baxter's shop became known for supplying pickles and preserves in the early 20th century, when George's son and daughter-in-law began preparing their own beetroot, and selling it to other grocers.

Today Baxters is best known for canned soups, made to unique recipes, such as Royal Game. In recent years they have bought up other food companies, including Garner’s Foods Ltd and CCL Foods plc. Despite the size of the company, they still maintain an image as a "family business", with a series of advertisements showing the Baxter family heavily involved in the preparation of their products.

Baxters holds the Royal Warrant for manufacturers of Scottish specialties from H.M. the Queen.

Baxters operate manufacturing sites in Fochabersmarker and Colchestermarker in the UK. They also have manufacturing sites in Wolsztynmarker, Polandmarker and St Hyacinthe, Montrealmarker, Canadamarker. They also have Sales & Marketing offices in Glasgowmarker, Scotlandmarker and Melbournemarker, Australia.

Baxters also own and operate several shop/restaurant facilities across Scotland. These include branches at Ocean Terminalmarker in Edinburgh, Tullibardine in Perthshire, Selkirkmarker in the Scottish Borders and the Highland Village at their headquarters in Fochabersmarker.

The Company Sold off the Chilled soups division to Northern Foods in 2008.

Highland Village Visitors Center

Highland Village is a retail tourist attraction co-located with the headquarters of the business at its manufacturing site at Mosstodloch, Scotland. It features a tourism history as well as a well known retail department. The site contains six shops: the speciality food shop (George Baxter's Cellar), the cookshop (Mrs Baxter's Cookshop), the men and women's clothing shop (Coat and Swagger), the Bookshop and Toyshop (the Cabin), the Whisky shop (The Old shop), and the Giftshop (originally the Christmas/Sale shop). Each has its own area and decor; the Whisky shop was in fact a replica of the original shop up until 2007 when half of it was converted into a whisky, wine and spirits shop in order to free up some space in the Food shop to which it is connected. The Great Hall used to be a reception area but has now been converted into a luxury Signature Tea room, specialising in High Teas and Bistro evenings during selected periods.

Fochabers Factory

The company's main manufacturing site is located at Fochabersmarker, Moraymarker, Scotlandmarker, where it produces canned soups, jars of beetroot, jams and preserves. It is co-located with the headquarters of the company and its Highland Village Tourist attraction beside the River Speymarker.
