G’s Gourmet Jams is a family-run business set up as an alternative farm enterprise situated near the heritage town of Abbeyleix.

Almost 20 years ago, Helen Gee’s passion for food saw an opening to bring her family recipes back to life. From her kitchen, she started to build a brand that came from the heart. G’s Gourmet Jams are made with only the highest quality, natural ingredients to ensure her time honoured recipes taste just like “”Granny used to make.””

The taste of nostalgia from G’s Gourmet Jams, not to mention the quality, has resonated with consumers. With their continuing support the business has grown steadily over the years, within the retail, foodservice and export sectors.

Given the success of the award-winning jams, marmalades and jellies, more products were added to the mix, including a savoury range of chutneys, relishes and sauces, bringing diversity to the product portfolio.

G’s Gourmet Jams is continually striving for improvement year-on-year and is committed to supporting the Origin Green platform; achieving its sustainability strategy and its plans for the future.
