LOCAL MARMALADE MAKER  A LITTLE LUXURY LTD CELEBRATES SUCCESS AS AN AWARD WINNER IN GLOBAL MARMALADE COMPETITION 2017



RECORD ENTRIES FROM OVER 30 COUNTRIES

 

Local preserves company A Little Luxury Ltd, is toasting their success having received three prestigious food awards at the 12th World’s Original Marmalade Awards celebrations at Dalemain.  With record entries from around the globe, these Awards prove that their marmalade really is world class.

 
A Little Luxury Ltd from Sleaford in Lincolnshire has just scooped three Silver awards in the 12th World’s Original Marmalade Awards. The company won three of the marmalade world’s most prestigious accolades for their Boozy Orange, Limoncello and Lemon, Honey and Lavender Marmalades which impressed judges with their appearance, colour, consistency, aroma and flavour.

The results of this year’s Marmalade Awards in Cumbria prove that far from going out of fashion, quality marmalade is loved not only in Britain but around the world, where is fast becoming an international obsession. Cumbria was delighted to welcome marmalade makers from as far afield as Lebanon and Columbia for the Marmalade Awards & Festival on 18 & 19 March. Family marmalade makers and key sponsors Mackays themselves export to over 80 countries across Asia, Australasia, Europe, America and the Middle East, proving that the championing of marmalade abroad has clearly been a huge success.

Martin Grant, MD of Mackays said: “Well done to all the winners of this year’s World Marmalade Awards 2017. It’s been another successful year of marmalade making which Mackays is so proud to be a part of yet again.”

 
Owners Barbara and Laura Daughtrey said they were delighted to win the awards: “These are golden awards for us in more ways than one! We are so pleased to have won these awards against such strong competition from all over the world. We’ve got our preserve pans at the ready to make lots more jars so please come and try them at www.alittleluxury.org.uk or at one of the various national and local shows we will be attending this year


The Artisan judges for 2017 were a prestigious panel of food industry experts, including Sam Rosen-Nash from Fortnum & Mason and Dan Lepard, food writer and baking guru. The guest of honour at the festival was the Japanese Ambassador, who was delighted to attend and taste the many Japanese entries ahead of plans for a Dalemain sister festival of Marmalade in Japan.


Jane Hasell-McCosh, founder of the Awards, said: “It has been wonderful to see how people’s love of marmalade has created a passionate community all around the world. It has been a great honour and joy to welcome so many marmalade makers to my home in Cumbria in celebration of such a well loved preserve, and great fun to see the team at ‘Penrith Goes Orange’ taking the festival to another level with such an innovative and exciting family day out.”



The Awards are sponsored by Mackays of Dundee, Tate & Lyle and Fortnum & Mason, and are proud to raise money for palliative care around the world. This year’s key beneficiaries include Hospice at Home Carlisle & North Lakes and Marie Curie Scotland, and to date the Awards have raised well over £200,000 for charity.
