Baked in Belfast, the Fermanagh-based specialist in highly original jams, has won a string of awards in the prestigious World Marmalade Awards 2019 in Britain.
Based near Enniskillen, Baked in Belfast, an artisan business, is now Northern Ireland’s most successful producer of quirky and handcrafted marmalades.
A Food NI member, the small company is run by husband and wife team Suzanne and Keith Livingstone.
The Fermanagh business gained the following awards at the annual event in Cumbria:
Certificate of Merit for Soda Water and Lime Marmalade; and
Bronze medals for:
Buck’s Fizz Marmalade

Irish Whiskey Marmalade
Mrs Livingstone, commenting on the awards, says: “We are thrilled with our latest successes at the world’s most influential competition for marmalade producers.
“The panel of expert judges clearly appreciated our range of highly original flavours. I hope the endorsement in these important awards will be beneficial as we continue to seek expand sales throughout the UK, Ireland and further afield.”
Baked in Belfast was among over 3,000 entrants from over 40 countries to the awards, held at the historic Dalmain Estate, near Penrith in Cumbria for more than a decade.
It is the world’s premier marmalade competition and attracts entries for most parts of Europe, South Africa as well as the US and Japan.
This year, there are no fewer than 15 categories.
Baked in Belfast was established in 2011 and also specialises in relishes and handcrafted pottery.
