Late Queen’s favourite marmalade maker posts loss for first time ‘in memory’






The late Queen’s favourite marmalade maker has posted its first loss “in memory” after it was hammered by the soaring cost of energy and raw materials.

Walter Scott, chairman of Wilkin & Sons, which owns Tiptree Marmalade, said “virtually all” of the company’s troubles could be laid at the door of energy costs, which he blamed for pushing up the price of everything from glass jars to packaging.

    Why is it, whenever any Company makes a loss, it is always the fault of somebody else?

    They make marvellous jams. Enormously expensive jams. Double the price of everyone else's jams. 5 times the price of "value" jams. During a cost of living crisis.

    If, for example, the price of glass has gone up by, say, 10 pence, that affects the 50 pence value jam maker rather more than the £3 one.

    The highest paid Director was paid £279,000 in the FY so things were not too bad.

    £2.60 for a 340g jar doesnt seem too bad.

    £8.49
    200g Chocolate Olivers

    Rich, dark chocolate, generously enrobed around a crisp slow-baked biscuit Chocolate Olivers are the ultimate biscuit indulgence, made using a patented recipe from the 1930’s, which includes hops and malt, with the thickest, richest dark chocolate.

    These biscuits are infamous – in fact it is said that John Lennon of The Beatles once refused to be paid in cash, preferring Chocolate Olivers instead!
