Corner Store Jam is a hand-made product in Melbourne that addresses food waste, community disengagement and food insecurity. Their unique flavours result from using rescued fruits, preventing landfill and rotting.
Product reviews from our experts…
I love that this jam is made from upcycled, locally-grown fruit that would otherwise be thrown away and that the brand is providing purpose to communities who face social barriers.
I’m also impressed that the Corner Store is working to address several UN Sustainable Development Goals 2, 9, 10, 12 and 13. Specifically I commend their commitment to net zero and offsetting double their greenhouse gas emissions each year in addition to their efforts to reduce food waste (and thereby greenhouse gas emissions).
This was the most delicious jam – so full of flavour with huge full figs in it. I couldn’t stop eating it, especially with cheese – So tasty! I also love the focus of this organisation – they are committed to ethical and mindful production of a fabulous product. They are tackling food waste, community sharing and assisting small communities. This stacks up to a wonderfully focussed initiative!
