THE FRUIT GARDEN is a luxury jam brand proudly from the Philippine Islands. It's the only local artisanal jam maker that uses the French way -- prepared in small batches using copper cauldrons and using 100% natural products with no additives or preservatives.
They are 4-time winners and graduates of the Ultimate Taste Test series:
