A Guide To Kitchen Garden Foods Ltd, A Cotswolds Fine Food Manufacturer
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 oldstone-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.
