New Australian jam producer South Pacific Jam Company (SPJC) is sourcing exotic fruit from Australian growers to produce a range of high-end jams.
The new jams from South Pacific Jam Company including Banana Jam, Mango & Ginger Jam and Guava & Pineapple Jam are made with crafted blends of Australian unrefined raw sugar, coconut oil and coconut sugar to create a rich, caramelised coconut setting with up to 40 per cent less sugar than other jams and spreads.
“It’s quality in a jar,” says founder Catherine Stace. “Australia has an abundance of tree fruits but culturally we’ve been stuck in a loop of runner fruits. Until now, we have overlooked stunning flavour profiles such as banana.”
The fruits used are either part of the Environmental Working Group’s ‘Clean 15’ list or have an added layer of skin protecting the fruit, requiring less protection strategies than soil-based runner fruits. All fruits are identifiable to Australian farms and contribute to zero wastage for farmers.
Targeted at people seeking quality pairings for artisan breads and pastries and consumers who value taste, quality and identifiable ingredients over price, the range will be stocked in quality retail health and grocery stores and in a select number of food service venues with a RRP of $11 (250ml).
