Our Journey

From our very beginnings to our latest innovations – this is our journey.

From our origins in a Home Kitchen

Cottage Delight was founded in 1974, originally creating handmade butter fudge. Over the subsequent years Cottage Delight range grew to include jams, marmalades, curds, chutneys, table sauces and many more delectable delights. Four delicious decades later, we are still residing at our home in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands and continue to create our original fudge recipe today. Our incredible journey would not have been possible without the support of the independent trade and we remain loyal to these local retailers.

To our contemporary Artisan Recipes

When creating our tempting treats, we carefully curate recipes that will be something special for our foodie fans. Our dedication to traditional methods and quality ingredients in our punchy pickles, delicious dressings, fabulous flavour fusions and others, is paramount to our products – which have won an amazing 198 Great Taste Awards since the awards began.

But our incredible journey would not have been possible without the support of independent trade and we remain loyal to these local retailers; our range of products also includes our blissful bakery, perfect pâtés, and sensational sauces, which are all only available to independent garden centres, farm shops, delis and more; as well as at local fine food festivals.

We continue our journey Providing Possibility

As we continue into our 45th year and beyond, we continue our mission to bring new flavours and heaps of inspiration to your table, providing possibility and potential, with a touch of sparkle. Because our juicy jams aren’t just for spreading on toast, and our chunky chutneys aren’t just for serving with cheese.

And ensuring we uphold Our Ethos

We believe in celebrating flavour, bringing people together to explore new ways to enjoy food and embark on their own flavour adventures because we believe that great taste means great times – and great times are always worth celebrating!
