Baxters is an international food company, based in Fochabers, Scotland. 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 Fochabers and Earls Colne in the UK. They also have manufacturing sites in Wolsztyn, Poland and St Hyacinthe, Montreal, Canada. They also have Sales & Marketing offices in Glasgow, Scotland and Melbourne, Australia.

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

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