Award Winning Jam Makers
At Single Variety Co, we are passionate about creating a truly premium range of award-winning chilli jams and fruit preserves, making everything ourselves in our little jam factory in Bristol. We source the best fruit and chillies we can find and then pack each jar full of it using much less sugar than traditional jams. We use just one variety in each of our products - showcasing the unique flavour, colour and aroma of that single variety. Hence the name!
I founded Single Variety Co from my kitchen at home with the support of my then boyfriend, Ross. We are now married and run the business together. We have two small children, with another on the way and now have a proper little family business that we plan to keep and grow so that one day our children may wish to join! With this in mind we felt it important that we establish a set of values for the business so that all our Jam Team and our wonderful customers (our Jam Fam!), know what we stand for and believe in. It is how we lead our own lives, how we wish to raise our children and therefore as our family and work life are so intertwined, it's how we wish to run our business.
Honesty - Being open and transparent in all that we do.
Decency - Doing the right thing ethically and morally.
Quality - Ensuring everything we do and each product we create is as good as it can be.
