Having grown up making delicious preserves with her mother, our founder, Emma Macdonald, has always had an obsession for food and the pursuit of taste. This passion for discovering exciting and innovative flavours saw her travel the world as a chef, before launching The Bay Tree. Today, we have over 150 mouth-watering products for you to try. We have a passion for tradition but our inherent sense of adventure continues to push us, to fully explore many conceivable flavours – only ever bringing you something that we are truly proud of. These values are still central to our philosophy today; we call it making the ordinary extraordinary.
Emma has now written two cookery books, Home Deli Recipes and Preserving to share her deep, deep love of food with home cooks worldwide. We believe that taste is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Quite simply, food that tastes great makes life feel better. Our goal is simple – to make the wonder of nature’s finest flavours a part of everyday life. Emma’s huge range of preserves, sweet and savoury are available online here.
