Business mum ships Gloucester-made jam around the world
JAMS, pickles and chutneys are proving to be a sought-after commodity around the world – and one Barnwood mum is hoping to cash in.
Sarah Churchill started up her Artisan Kitchen preserve business from her home in 2011 and now turns out 500 pots a week.
She has scooped culinary awards for her efforts and now ships her selection of preserves as far afield as Kuwait to be enjoyed by Her Majesty's High Commission.
Sarah manages the business and cooks from her own kitchen at home in Barnwood Road.

"My business was born firstly from a desire to create fantastic tasting produce using as much locally-sourced ingredients as possible," she said.
"There was also a need to balance family life with my young son who was starting school this year.
"Gloucester is a fantastic vibrant diverse city, and I have felt a great deal of community support, with friends regularly donating their produce in exchange for jams and pickles.
"It has been good making new friends who just don't want to see nature's bounty going to waste. Only today I have been picking apples from a gentleman's tree in Stroud whom I have met through an orchard trust website."
Her dream is to find a small commercial space in the city to take her business to the next level.
MP Richard Graham visited her home to try out her products for himself.
"Every day I find a new Gloucester business exporting, so I'm going to try and help Sarah's exports reach other far away embassies and high commissions," he said.
