Winning an Artisan Award denotes a marmalade of incredibly high quality and past winners have seen huge increases in their sales. All Artisan entries are judged by an expert panel and selected winners are sold by Fortnum & Mason in their famous Piccadilly Store. We look for all types of marmalade, including Low Sugar and Organic!  This is a specialist competition for small producers who make their marmalade using the traditional open-pan method, and sell their products commercially.

2021 Artisan Gold Winners have many success stories, for example:

  • Sahoko Mochizuki dedicated her winning marmalades to the Kunozan Toshogu Shrine in Shizuoka city, Japan, an event that captured the press’s attention
  • Esther Brooks of Woodcrest Kitchen saw her winning marmalade sell out within three months of winning the award, this growth in her business gave her the opportunity to speak at a local Women and Business Forum
  • Paco Sáez at Lorusso Food, a small artisanal family business, now sells their marmalade in 14 countries on 3 continents! Including a high end premium department store in Hong Kong

This shows the power of a jar of marmalade and with a World’s Original Marmalade Awards roundel on your jar, your business could reach a whole new audience. If you think your marmalade has what it takes, enter one of the categories below.
