Established in 1880, the company, which is a standalone division of The Real Good Food Company, has been making jams and marmalades for over 130 years from its factory in Carluke, Lanarkshire. With quality and heritage at its very core, R&W Scott still use time-honoured cooking methods based on traditional recipes with open copper pans and small batches of hand-stirred ingredients to preserve the products’ home-made appeal.
The company’s jams and marmalades recipes are also created using only the finest quality ingredients with a high fruit content. The fruit for all R&W jams was historically sourced from local farms and this tradition has continued with the Scottish berry preserves range, which features only locally grown fruit.

We’ve been making jams for generations and the Tesco listing is testament to our ongoing commitment to deliver great quality products without compromising on taste and affordability.”
