A few weekends ago, Windermere's Saunders Family Farm attended the Grocery & Specialty Food West exhibition at the Vancouver Convention Centre and they came away a big winner.

The Columbia Valley-based company is excited to announce that a panel of food experts selected the Top 10 Most Innovative Products appearing on shelves of B.C. grocery stores.  The Gourmet Jams & Unique Spicy Jellies, made by Saunders Family Farm, “tastes like how grandma used to make jellies and jams” – made the Top 10 list.

“(We) attended the largest trade show is Western Canada, where the largest retailers in Canada meet. The response to our product was amazing. All our hard work is paying off in big ways! Lots of exciting news to come. One of the most exciting things that happened at the show is that we were awarded in the top 10 most innovative products of 2017! This creates major exposure. A big thank you to all our customers, friends, and family for all the support over the years!” the company stated on their Facebook page.

In addition to distribution points in many small independent specialty food retailers across Western Canada, Saunders products are now stocked in the likes of Save-on-Foods, Safeway and Sobey’s, though many will be most familiar with the company’s offerings at local farmer markets.

The company is owned and operated by Faith and Gordon Saunders and supported by sales manager Rae McPherson.
