IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR INTERNATIONAL ENTRANTS: We are delighted to receive so many marmalade entries from all over the world, and are very grateful to everyone who enters. However, we ask that all international entrants be certain to CLEARLY MARK ALL PARCELS ‘TASTING SAMPLES ONLY, NOT FOR RESALE’ to avoid import tax duties. The Marmalade Awards cannot afford these charges, and this may mean your marmalade does not arrive for judging.
The Artisans’ Category is for commercial marmalade makers who use the traditional open-pan method. The numbers increase every year, and makers from all parts of the U.K. and Europe enter the competition. Like the Amateurs they too are awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze, as well as a Double Gold. The Artisan entrants are judged by an esteemed panel of experts, and extensive feedback is provided.
The Artisan Awards set a standard which is recognised internationally.
Confidential feeback on all marmalade judged with every jar entered receiving a judges tasting sheet with comments and a certificate.
Double Gold, Gold, Silver & Bronze Winners will be advertised on the website.
Marmalade awarded a Double Gold Roundel will be offered the opportunity of being on sale at Fortnum & Mason.
Winning a Dalemain Marmalade Award (Roundel) is a marketing ‘gift’ for your brand and past winners have noted a significant increase in their sales. Dalemain roundels for Award Winners are then affixed to their jars for general sale, denoting a marmalade of exemplary quality.
