Hi! I’m Nicola and I started Single Variety Co back in 2016 determined to make the very best tasting fruit preserves and chilli jams that you can buy.
My mission is to make really delicious jams which you want to use in all sorts of ways!
It all began from my kitchen at home in London. Visiting nearby farms (not that nearby, it’s a good few hours to find a farm from London!) I tried lots of different varieties of fruit and back home experimented until I had developed the tastiest jams using the least sugar possible, each jam showcasing the true flavour of the fruit.
I also visited chilli farms and chose three very unique chillies to develop my three chilli jams- one mild, one hot and one super hot!
I started selling at food markets across London, gaining lots of feedback on the flavours to improve the quality of my jams, and three years down the line you can now buy us in high end and independent retailers across the UK, and right here, on our website.
Whilst we’ve outgrown my home kitchen, we still stay true to our roots, passionately sourcing all of our ingredients from our dedicated farmers, using 100% British fruit in our fruit preserves (except for Alphonso Mangos and Oranges as it’s not hot enough to grow them here!) and making all of our products in small batches.
