Family jam company Mammy Jamia’s is now supplying British Airways Business Class customers with its preserves.
Mammy Jamia’s Pear Preserve has been added to the in-flight menu as a side to the cheeseboard.
Andrew Cairns said: “The airline catering company supplying British Airways with our Pear Preserve did a product trial of jams and preserves currently on the market. They were looking for a unique, luxurious and tasty alternative to what they have usually supplied and our jam came out top.
“The company is trying other flavours in our range and, as they supply airlines like Emirates and China Airways, the opportunities in this market are very exciting.”
Mammy Jamia’s was launched by husband and wife Andrew and Sajmira Cairns in 2011 and is stocked in Tesco, Waitrose, Ocado, Booths and Asda.
There are currently eight jams in the range – fig, pear, rhubarb, apple, plum, greengage, ginger and quince. All of the jams are based on an original recipe passed down through Sajmira’s family, hence the name Mammy Jamia.
The jams are manufactured and distributed by Kent-based Opies, one of the UK’s oldest private family-owned food companies.
The 340g jars retail at £2.39.
