Duerr’s Launch Rhubarb & Custard Bake Stable Jam


Be like a kid in a sweet shop with the UK’s first-ever jam for bakers available now!

Making burnt bottoms and chewy tarts a thing of the past, the preserves, specially developed for domestic ovens, ensures jam retains its smooth and glossy consistency when heated. As a result you are guaranteed a moist jammy filling that does justice to your bake, with a professional finish that would make Mary Berry, patron saint of bakers, proud.

Perfect for tarts, roly poly and sponge puddings, the innovative bake-stable formula has been developed by renowned innovators Duerr’s – the UK’s oldest family owned jam company.

The fruit-packed jams are also ideal straight from the jar and the easy-to-spread texture provides a must-try filling for sponges and cakes, in addition to a lip smacking topping for toast.

Richard Duerr, Marketing Director, says: “This is the Age of the Baker. But while one in seven of us are going bonkers on a weekly basis for firm bottoms, the market – until now -lacked a bake stable jam to deliver results to the standards exacted by our country of skilled enthusiasts. Our home baking jam not only responds to that demand but, with its purposefully inventive flavours, appeals to the experimental spirit of British bakers.”

The Manchester-based jam maker, established in 1881, is well known for creating exciting products; most recently celebrating Valentine’s Day with a cheeky Aphrodisiac Jam, the first product to be sold exclusively via their website, and the world’s most expensive marmalade, costing £5,000 for a 1kg jar.  This year they launched their first branded peanut butter, in smooth and crunchy.

Available in Aldi Stores.

Duerr’s raise £30,000 for ‘More Tomorrows’ cancer research fund

Duerr’s, Britain’s oldest family run jam and marmalade makers, have donated £30,000 to ‘More Tomorrows’, a unique fundraising partnership between Cancer Research UK, The Christie and The University of Manchester.

Raise £30,000 for Cancer ResearchThe money was raised at Duerr’s annual charity ball, held at The Monastery, Manchester in November and will help to fund the construction of the new Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC).

Juliet Mitchell, cousin to Mark and Richard Duerr, who has previously been treated at The Christie, presented the cheque.

The MCRC, which is being built in Withington, is funded by Cancer Research UK, the University of Manchester and The Christie. The largest centre of its kind in Europe, the MCRC is set to revolutionise cancer treatment in the North West and will bring hope to thousands, including the 13,200 people diagnosed with cancer each year in the Greater Manchester area alone.

The ‘More Tomorrows’ fundraising campaign will raise the remaining £6m needed to complete the MCRC, which comes with a price tag of £28.5m.

Mark Duerr, Managing Director of Duerr’s says: “Our annual ball was a brilliant success and we’re now delighted to hand over £30,000 on behalf of our guests who dug deep for such a deserving cause. The MCRC’s aim is to revolutionise the treatment of cancer – a disease which affects 36 people in Manchester  every single day.”

Professor Richard Marais, Director of the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute adds: “The new MCRC building will allow us to continue to be a world-leader in cancer research. Duerr’s support of the More Tomorrows campaign will ultimately help to develop new, personalised treatments that will save the lives of patients in Manchester and around the world – creating more tomorrows for more people. Thank you to all who made the Jamski Ball such a wonderful success”.

Since 2000, Duerr’s are proud to have raised more than £555,000 for charity. In 2012, Duerr’s ‘Marma Mia’ 70s themed ball raised funds for Place2Be. The charity – whose patron is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge  – provides school based emotional and mental health support to children, parents and teachers.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I, Duerr’ released a limited edition run of ‘The Lifeguard Periscope’.

The periscope was invented and patented by Edgar Duerr, a second-generation family member. For use in trench warfare, the collapsible periscope was considered such a significant part of Britain’s war effort that originals used by troops are on display in The Imperial War Museums in London and Manchester, in addition to The Guards Museum in London.

The life-saving instrument enabled front-line soldiers to observe enemy movements from 50cm (20 inches) below the parapet, providing them with a view of up to 91m (100 yards).

Approved by the War Office and sold to individuals, the pocket-sized periscope weighed (20oz) and measured 11.5 x 11.5 x 5 cm (4.5 x 4.5 x 2inches) when closed.Screen Shot 2014-04-03 at 17.44.51
