Fruit preserves are still very popular today, and they are mass produced to countries across the globe thanks to their shelf life and versatility. Matthew’s Preserved was born out of the love of making chutneys and jams, and the idea for the company came in 2018 when Matthew’s mental health was at an all-time low.
For Matthew, making preserves became a passion, as he could focus on making great tasting products that were healthy for the mind and body. Having suffered from depression, anxiety and low self-esteem, the company gave Matthew a new direction in life. With the love and support from friends and family, Matthew decided to sell his preserves and spread positivity and awareness for mental health.
“For every jar we sell, 10p is donated to the mental health charity Mind UK.”
