The week saw the start of our celebrations of the Waitrose Duchy Organic brand turning 25, with the announcement that annual sales for the brand have surpassed £200 million for the first time.  Duchy Originals was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1992, with the ground-breaking partnership established between Duchy Originals and Waitrose in 2009. Waitrose Duchy Organic is now the UK's largest own-label organic brand and the second largest UK organic brand overall.
