2005 marked the year we won our first award with our Fruits of the Forest Jam which won a silver Great Taste Award.
Since then, we've won over 20 awards, details of which can be found below.
Great Taste Awards
Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply, the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.

dalemain marmalade awards
These quirky awards were founded in 2005 with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade. The Awards are centred on Dalemain Mansion; a Georgian stately home lived in by the same family for over 300 years, which also happens to hold a very rich archive of Marmalade recipes.
The Artisan Awards promote small scale marmalade makers using the open-pan method. Judged by an esteemed panel, these prestigious Awards put marmalade makers on the map, and winners can display their ‘Gold’ ‘Silver’ or ‘Bronze’ Award roundel on their jars, a huge marketing gift that declares their marmalade one of the best quality preserves in the world.
