Welcome to VKP Preserves - the home of award winning handmade Jams, Marmalades, Chutneys and Relishes

 About Us

VKP Preserves is a Hull based cottage industry that makes preserves using family recipes, some of which date back 5 generations!

The idea for VKP Preserves was prompted when its founded, Vanessa Powell, found her grandmother's old recipe books.

After rooting through the recipes, she discovered a whole new business venture just waiting to be served up.

 VKP Preserves is situated within 'The Goodie Shop' at Skirlaugh Garden & Aquatic Centre and sells a variety of jams, marmalades and chutneys,

VKP has won awards at Beverley Food Festival for its caramelised carrot chutney and its Bramble Sour Cherry Conserve.

It has also recently picked up awards at the Preston Show, judged by the Womens Institute for their Pineapple and Onion Chutney and first place for their Apple & Mint Jelly.

VKP Preserves values local produce and we buy fresh seasonal ingredients. We also create preserves using fruits from the hedgerow. We do not use artificial colourings, fillers, additives or preservatives. Only the best natural ingredients as you would use at home!


We constantly strive to create innovative and unique products and we believe the quality, taste and appearance of our products is down to making our preserves by hand in small batches. We care about quality more than quantity.
