About Us / what we do:


At our Histon site, our largest single site within the Group, we manufacture ambient sweet spreads and jellies for a host of our grocery brands, including: Hartley's; Gales Honey; and marmalades under our Robertson's, Frank Coopers, Keiller and Rose's brands. We also produce private label products here.

The Hartley’s Jam heritage dates back to 1871, and today we are still Britain’s best loved jam selling enough each year to spread over 500 million pieces of toast. We offer you smooth jams, some ‘with bits’; convenient ‘squeezy’ packs; and our ‘Hartley’s Best’; which is packed with more fruit in an award winning jar.

And we know a thing or 2 about Jelly too. It is the fastest growing market in the UK Ambient Desserts category, and Hartley’s holds pole position. Our jelly tablet capability is unique to our Hartley’s brand. Our innovative ready-to-eat pots offer a quick and convenient snack, and are driving the category forward. Inherently low in fat, we also make sugar-free jellies in both convenient, individual pots, and ‘To-Make’ jellies; 10 Cal pot jellies; and pots with fruit suspended in jelly.
