J.B. Shackleton’s make traditional homemade marmalade, jellies, jams and spreads using recipes handed down through their family for more than five generations.

Everything is made by hand, in small batches, using natural ingredients, and with all the fruit from Australia. Because they use fresh fruits, availability depends on what is in season.

J.B. Shackleton’s have won a host of international awards, including a Double Gold medal for the best Traditional Marmalade in the 2017 World’s Original Marmalade Competition in the UK (their winning marmalade was ‘Luxury Grapefruit Marmalade with a hint of Honey’, and this same marmalade was also awarded a Gold at the 2016 Australian Fine Food Awards). Their Lime marmalade won a gold medal in 2018. Their Breakfast, Tahiti Lime and and Grapefruit marmalades had previously won gold medals in 2012, 2014 and 2015. And their Orange with Grand Marnier marmalade, Cumquat marmalade, Lemon jelly and Orange won silver medals in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The company is one of the earliest to have made and sold marmalade in Melbourne, with the original shop being at 3 Elgin Street, Carlton in the 1880s. The business, however, began much earlier in the UK around 1780, probably making them one of the earliest ever makers of marmalade.
