Fraser Doherty has been selling his Superjam at farmers markets and delicatessens since he was a youngster. Now 23 he has won contracts with almost all of the major UK supermarkets and is selling over 750,000 jars a year. He also runs a hugely successful project that provides tea parties for lonely elderly people all over the UK.
In his own words…
At 14, I was taught my Gran’s secret jam recipe in Scotland. I’m now 23 and over the past eight years have built a multimillion dollar company supplying millions of jars of 100% fruit no added sugar SuperJam to over 2,000 supermarkets around the world (Tesco, Wal-Mart etc). I’ve written two best-selling books; The SuperJam Cookbook (Random House) and SuperBusiness (Wiley). I’ve also set up a charity running hundreds of free tea parties for seniors.
