Maungo Craft Shortlisted For World Marmalade Awards

Maungo Craft Shortlisted For World Marmalade Awards

Local gourmet jam maker, Maungo Craft, was shortlisted for eclectic unique awards, The World’s Original Marmalade Awards, which were held on March 17th-18th at the Dalemian Mansion in London. The duo behind the jams made a special Morula infused marmalade treat with edible glitter for the festival.

The story goes that marmalade was invented in 1700, when a storm-damaged Spanish ship, carrying Seville oranges, sought refuge in Dundee harbour. The cargo was sold off cheaply to James Keiller, a down-on-his-luck local merchant, whose wife turned it into a preserve.

“We feel very lucky and honoured to have been shortlisted on a world stage competition. It has opened up possibilities for us,” states Bonolo Monthe and Olayemi Aganga.

These quirky awards were founded in 2005 by Jane Hasell-McCosh with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade. The Artisan Awards promote small scale marmalade makers using the open-pan method. Judged by an esteemed panel, these prestigious Awards put marmalade makers on the map, and winners can display their Gold, Silver or Bronze Award roundel on their jars, a huge marketing gift that declares their marmalade one of the best quality preserves in the world.
