Wilkin & Sons is a local supplier based in Tiptree, Essex that supplies Roys with a number of fruit preserves, jams and marmalades.
The Wilkin family have been farming at Tiptree, Essex, since 1757, and making quality preserves there since 1885. They grow a wide range of traditional English fruits and use them to make conserves and condiments in their factory by the farm. Where they cannot grow their own crops, they buy the best quality fruit from trusted sources around the world including marmalade oranges from Seville where they have worked with local growers for years. Their products are made to cherished recipes and are free from artificial colours and flavours. They inspect and prepare the fruit by hand, then cook in small batches using traditional, copper-bottomed pans.
