Arthur Charles Wilkin joined with two friends in 1885 to form the Britannia Fruit Preserving Company. He stipulated that the jam should be free of glucose, colouring and preservatives. The first jam was of such high quality and impressed one Australian merchant so much that he arranged to buy every last pot.
Traditional Tiptree Preserves: Strawberry, Raspberry, Black Apricot and Orange are made with just fruit and sugar and they are free from artificial colourings or preservatives. The Medium Cut Orange Marmalade is made with just oranges and sugar. Raspberry Preserve, packed full with berries is delicious with yoghurt or ice cream or simply spread on toast; while Strawberry Preserve can be used to fill a Victoria Sponge or for a jam sandwich with slices of banana.
