Janet Keiller’s Dundee Chip Marmalade 

She did not invent marmalade, but in 1797 built the first marmalade factory. Instead of a solid, paste marmalade, she was the first to cut the peel into ‘chips’ making a jelly-type, spreading marmalade ideal for breakfast toast. Her method increased both the finished volume and the profit margin.
