Australia’s Marmalade Awards began in 2016 as a partnership between the National Trust of South Australia and the World’s Original Marmalade Awards staged at Dalemain Estate in England.

These quirky awards were founded in 2005 by Jane Hasell-McCosh of Dalemain with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade. They have gone on to generate a following far beyond Jane’s wildest expectations and have humour and a life of their own, inspiring people from all over the world to get involved.  The World Awards are centred on Dalemain Mansion; a Georgian stately home lived in by the same family for over 300 years, which also happens to hold a very rich archive of Marmalade recipes.

Like the World’s Original competition, there are two categories in the Australian competition- the homemade marmalade awards and the artisan competition for small commercial producers.
