The Mercers story began in 2007, when Paul was running an import business, but looking for a new challenge. He heard the owner of local jam-making business in York was retiring, offering him and his wife the perfect opportunity for a new venture. Since then they have proved a great team; Paul is a passionate foodie, while Lizzie keeps a steady eye on design and quality.
Mercers jam is soft-set like its popular French counterparts, but has a higher fruit content, making it one of the fruitiest jams available on supermarket shelves. The range also includes Marmalades, Chutneys, Curds, Mustard amongst others.
