Kitchen Garden Foods is a multi-award winning company, with gold stars in The Great Taste Awards, wins in the Soil Association Organic Food Awards and Taste Of The West awards under its belt and The Cotswold Life Food Producer of the Year award in 2007.

The Kitchen Garden jar range is sold to independent delis, farm shops, hamper companies and garden centres throughout the UK and overseas. A catering range is sold to pubs, restaurants and hotels, many of them through Creed Foodservice. The company also produces several ‘private label’ ranges for the likes of English Heritage, The Fine Cheese Company and the RSPB. Ingredients are sourced locally when possible, and the company’s best selling chutney is Old Spot Real Ale Chutney using the popular ale from Uley Brewery. Tewkesbury Mustard is also a local favourite; a mixture of mustard and horseradish, it is a lovely creamy mustard, developed from a 16th century recipe. The Kitchen Garden recipe has been adapted to suit modern kitchen equipment, but the original recipe calls for mustard seed to be ground in a stone mortar with a cannonball!

In 2013 a new brand, Wolfys Porridge, was launched. Wolfys porridge pots feature a little pot of Kitchen Garden jam or honey tucked under the lid and within twelve months of launching they were selling through 78 Waitrose Stores, First Great Western and East Midlands Trains, as well as numerous independent cafes, bakeries, leisure and sporting outlets. Three flavours were launched; Creamy with Berry Pot, Nutty with Honey Pot and Spiced with Pear and Ginger Pot, and a further three will be launched during 2014.
