Hank’s Jam was founded by Hank Doudeswell in 1993. An experienced chef, Hank started making his own Rich Orange Marmalade for breakfast customers in the inner city Sydney restaurant in which he was working. Other restaurants and cafés in the area also became customers as Hank by now was working on his marmalade making full time from his home kitchen.
New varieties of marmalades were created and then jams were added to the offerings. From the outset Hank’s focus was on sourcing the highest quality fruit for his jams and if the quality fruit available was also organic then this was preferred.
