Marshall Cavendish is a subsidiary company of Times Publishing Group, the printing and publishing subsidiary of Singapore-based conglomerate Fraser and Neave (which in turn currently owned by ThaiBev, the beverage company in Thailand), and at present is a publisher of books, business directories and magazines. Marshall Cavendish was established in the United Kingdom in 1968 by Norman Marshall (1921-1975) and Patrick Cavendish (1939-2000). Times Publishing Group acquired it in 1980.
In 2011, Amazon Publishing acquired over 450 titles of Marshall Cavendish's US Children's trade books business, Marshall Cavendish Children's Books (MCCB). In 2013, Roger Rosen of Rosen Publishing acquired the Marshall Cavendish's US Children's library books business.
The now defunct publisher, Colour Library Books Limited of Surrey, produced at least one title the material of which was listed as copyright of Marshall Cavendish. In The Vicar of Dibley penultimate episode, Geraldine Granger has a copy of the 'Colour Library Book - Nice & Easy Cookbook' (1988) next to her chocolate filled Bible.
