Ollands Farm Foods World Marmalade

Norfolk-based Ollands Farm Foods is celebrating after scooping three golds and silver at the prestigious World’s Original Marmalade Awards.

Now in its 12th year, the awards are open to entries from across in the world. Happisburgh-based Ollands Farm Foods fought off stiff competition to win gold awards for their Seville Orange Marmalade, Lemon and Herb Marmalade and their Lime and Chilli Marmalade, and silver for their Seville and Whisky Marmalade.

Owner, Mary Ann Stuart, is delighted with the recognition:

“All our products are handmade in small batches in our own kitchen. When you commit to the traditional methods we use, you do get fantastic quality, but it’s tough! It’s fantastic to be recognised on an international stage – all the hard work has paid off.”

The awards were presented by the Japanese ambassador to the United Kingdom during the Marmalade Festival, held in Cumbria from 17th to 19th March. Organisers said the quality of entries this year has been the highest yet, with a phenomenal range of flavours.

Ollands Farm Foods has received awards in previous years, peaking at Silver. This buy ventolin tablets online year’s triple win is a particular triumph as some of the winning flavours are new to their range. Mary Ann continues:

“I’m particularly pleased with the wins for the Lemon and Herb and Lime and Chilli Marmalades. We’ve only introduced these within the last year after months of taste tests, trial and error. They’re a bit of a departure from traditional breakfast marmalades. The Lime and Chilli Marmalade goes really well with fish and seafood and the Lemon and Herb Marmalade has just the right blend of herbs to suit a roast or baked chicken dish.”

The award wins are expected to spell a particularly busy period in Mary Ann’s kitchen as demand for her winning marmalades increases.

“We’ve been beavering away since we heard about the gold awards and really hope this recognition will get more marmalade fans to try something a little bit different!”

Ollands Farm Foods products can be found at several farm shops across Norfolk, and at selected farmer’s markets. You can also order online. Visit their website for more details.
