The Company

The Worshipful Company of Tallow Chandlers is one of the 109 Livery Companies of the City of London. We began in the 1200s as a trade organisation, but nowadays we’re just as focused on charitable work.

We support a wide range of charities, with a particular emphasis on education. We maintain strong links with the oil and edible fats industries, so we still help people light their houses, keep themselves clean and enjoy good food. And we meet regularly, because we know that all our work is built on good fellowship.

Tallow – what is it and where does it come from?
