MISSION

At Jam Packed Preserves, we believe in the importance of business being a force for good – good for the planet, good for people and good for the future.

GOOD FOR THE PLANET.

We aim to make luxury British preserves that won’t cost the earth. We have set ethical and sustainable goals and our values of supporting the British farming community and constantly working to reduce our environmental impact are very important to us. To do this we:

  • hero our British pollinators and other insects on our packs. Without the pollinators, we will have no ingredients!
  • Support British wildlife conservation by supporting the work of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and the Bee Friendly Trust.
  • Offer talks to local groups, such as Rotary clubs and Womens’ Institutes about topics such as preserving, beekeeping and planting for pollinators free of charge.
  • Keep and care for our own bees and support others in the area to do so.
  • Support the British farming economy to promote sustainable farming by buying our ingredients from British growers whenever possible.
  • Source our ingredients as locally as possible to reduce food miles.
  • Use recyclable and single use plastic free packaging.

GOOD FOR PEOPLE.

We also believe it is vital for businesses to support the local community and give back to make this community in which we live and work a better place. To do this we:

  • Support Surrey Choices and offer work experience placements for adults with neurodiverse conditions and who are disabled
  • Donate products to the Epsom and Ewell Food Bank for their clients
  • Support the work of the Jay C Trust, a local charity set up to support families and those affected by glioblastoma. As a former neuroscience nurse who had seen the impact of this devastating and life-limiting condition first hand – this was a no brainer for director, Sue (if you will pardon the pun!).

GOOD FOR THE FUTURE.

We want to do more and are on a journey to reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact further. We have signed up as a supporter of the Better Business Act and are part of a group of over 900 companies working towards a cleaner, greener, fairer future for all. We are also working towards becoming a certified B Corp.
