A family business, we operate from a converted Kentish Oast House on the edge of the picturesque village of Wye. Our premises include a small factory shop with a viewing gallery overlooking the production area. The artisan production is supported by modern filling and capping equipment which enables us to optimise efficiency without impacting on quality.
The Wooden Spoon is synonymous with tradition and good taste, which has led us to expand exports and be sought out by a number of high profile organisations for the supply of bespoke ranges. It goes without saying that we source as much UK fruit as we can for our products: apples, plums, damsons, strawberries, tayberries, loganberries, blackcurrants and blackberries are only some examples.
Our enthusiastic urge to come up with new products often overwhelms our business planning, and as a result we have a range that is probably greater than most multinationals! Its not just the ranges – extra jams, marmalades, no added sugar spreads, curds, bottled fruits, chutneys, sauces, relishes – its also the breadth of variation in jars which range from 35g single portion units to 1.1kg dinner party-size fruits in liqueur jars.
“Small & perfectly preserved! The Wooden Spoon’s heritage has been crafted over the years, much like our preserves. Founded 39 years ago, the company has stayed true to its roots by focussing on artisan products aimed at independent retailers.”Jeff Higgins, MD
