IndustryEdit

In the early 1880s, John Broomer developed an early form of margarine called Butterine.[4] He established a factory in the Olive Tree works, a former hat factory on Mottram Road previously occupied by Henry Taylor Wrigley. In 1888, the Danish margarine manufacturer Otto Monsted acquired the Olive Tree works.[5] The factory was sold to Maypole Dairies in 1902 and later used by Walls to manufacture ice cream and meat products.
