About us

Matthew's Preserved was born out of mental health issues. I had a mental breakdown in 2018 and after being unable to go back to my job, I was gently pushed my friends and family to start selling my preserves to earn a little income. Fast forward three years and my little business, which is still run by myself at my home, has accumulated a plethora of national awards for my products and is being stocked in 22 independent shops around the country.

Having suffered with my mental health all my life, I decided it would be appropriate to give something back to the those who have helped me so much in the past. Mind UK was the obvious choice.

Therefore, for every jar I sell, be that directly to the customer or via retail/ wholesale outlets, I donate 10p.

To date the business has donated £834.95 in the past two years.
