At KITCHEN GARDEN FOODS we have been making top quality jams, chutneys, marmalades and condiments under the KITCHEN GARDEN label since 1989 when Barbara Moinet cooked up her first batch of Blackberry and Apple Jam in the kitchen of her Gloucestershire cottage.
The small town of Stroud on the edge of the Cotswold Hills, where the company is now based, has a long and honourable tradition of artisan manufacturing – cloth, beer, walking sticks – to name but a few. The old stone-built mills which cluster around the canal, railway, the river Frome and its tributaries, are a reminder of the hard work and determination which helped to build this part of Gloucestershire (known as the Five Valleys) and give it the character which is still in evidence today.
In the building that was formerly the Stroud Brewery, where Kitchen Garden is now based, you will find a hive of activity. You will know when you’ve arrived – not from the heady mix of malt and hops from the old days, but equally tantalising – the delicious aroma of soft fruit and spices.
Still true to our founding principles, we have never felt the need to change our production methods nor compromise on quality. Everything sold under the Kitchen Garden label is made in the Cotswolds by our team of talented and enthusiastic cooks and they do it just the way it always has been done.
