Kempen Food Co. produce delicious jams, marmalade, chutneys and relishes by hand in small batches.
This Nantwich based business was set up in August 2013 and their official launch coincided with The Nantwich show, where they won second prize for best dressed stand. They began originally with only 9 products and just one year later expanded their product range to 26.
Cheri has a lot of fun experimenting with different flavour combinations and varieties of fruit, mixing them together with spices and alcohol to create unique products. Where possible, they use locally sourced fruit and vegetables, even picking their own sometimes, and all Kempen products are gluten and dairy free and suitable for vegetarians.
The most popular product so far has been their best selling 'Cherry, Peach and Amaretto Jam' with close contenders 'Strawberry Fizz Jam', Peach and Onion Relish' and proper Mango Chutney. Their 'Lemon Delight' marmalade has just been awarded a GOLD star in this year's Great Taste Awards.
Kempen Food's range of delicious jams, chutneys, relishes and marmalades can currently be found at Nantwich Farmers Market, Sandbach Farmers Market, Cheerbrook Farm Shop and Bents Garden Centre.
They also attend various food festivals and events over the year. See their Facebook Page for more details.
