Rakusen's Company Logo

Rakusen’s is a British kosher food manufacturer established in 1900 in Leeds, where it continues to operate today. Although best known for its matzo, matzo meal and matzo crackers, it also produces soups, beans, Tomor margarine, and other products.

Rakusen's was founded by a watch maker, Lloyd Rakusen, who started from baking matzos in his own back room to forming a factory in the city of Leeds, passing the thriving company onto his family in 1944 at his death.

Rakusen's is now owned by Andrew Simpson, who has just recently taken over the company.

Rakusen's products are all approved by the London Beth Din. Most British supermarkets stock some Rakusen's products all year, and special Passover matzo at Passover.
