Our Story

At Usk River, our journey to ‘Chutney Heaven’ began in a Scout Hut kitchen with several well-thumbed family recipes. Since then we’ve blossomed into an award-winning producer, offering a range of truly distinctive preserves that really are ‘Relishious!’

Hand Made

Produced at our very own specially equipped kitchen unit, with top hygiene ratings, we remain true to our original concept.
We make all our preserves by hand using traditional techniques, patient cooking and all-natural ingredients, often sourced locally as the seasons turn.

Award Winning

Our tantalising flavours have won many plaudits from the experts, and have been greatly appreciated by top food professionals at the annual Great Taste Awards.

Usk River has brought in a bumper crop of 13 Great Taste Awards, and won the highest number of Awards of any Welsh producer for two years running – we are very proud of our achievements!

Our meticulous attention to detail goes right to the core of our business, and we pride ourselves on offering excellent quality, consistent product flavours, and friendly reliable approach.

Loyal Following

Our preserves not only taste fantastic, but also look enticing with beautiful labels and quirky names, such as the Delicious ‘Relishious’, Lively ‘Pear-Lilli’, Exotic ‘Indian Summer’ and Rich Smooth ‘Figgy Plum’ – whatever your taste there’s something to tempt.

We’re proud to supply leading retailers,delis, food halls and farm shops and these include Kate Humble’s ‘Humble by Nature’ venture in Monmouthshire, beautiful Llanerch Vineyard and the prestigious Celtic Manor Resort. ‘Great British Menu’ chef Stephen Terry of The Hardwick is also a big fan.

Having built a loyal following across Wales and the Marches, our exceptional products are receiving increasing attention from further afield as we grow.
