Benefits of Guild Membership

Simply Preserved Magazine

Each member of The Guild receives FREE access to our quarterly digital magazine Simply Preserved. It is packed full of articles and information - very few advertisements - and you could always contribute an article of your own.

Aimed at home producers, artisans and anybody who is nuts about jams and preserves. On sale to non-members for £2.50 per issue.

Regular Email Newsletter

In between the quarterly magazines publications members are updated on news and views with email newsletters.

Knowledge Base Article Library

We are building an on-line library of technical articles which deliver information in a no-nonsense jargon-free format. They are an invaluable resource which we are adding to all of the time. It is free for members to access for their own use. Each article has been factually checked by Trading Standards or the appropriate agency.
