Small & perfectly preserved!

The Wooden Spoon’s heritage has been crafted over the years, much like our preserves. Founded 40 years ago, the company has stayed true to its roots by focusing on artisan products aimed at independent retailers.

Our Story

To this day our small team has stayed true to the essence of why the company was created 40 years ago: the desire to produce a unique range of traditional and contemporary preserves using natural ingredients.

A family business, we operate from a converted Kentish Oast House on the edge of the picturesque village of Wye. Our premises include a small factory shop with a viewing gallery overlooking the production area. The artisan production is supported by modern filling and capping equipment which enables us to optimize efficiency without impacting on quality.

We are proud members of the Guild of Fine Foods which represents manufacturers and independent retailers across the UK, as well as Produced in Kent, the champion for good food in the Garden of England. As a manufacturer, we only sell products that we make here in our premises. Wooden Spoon is synonymous with tradition and good taste, which has led us to expand exports and be sought out by a number of high profile organisations for the supply of bespoke ranges.
