Meet The Maker
It is almost impossible to describe Janet’s Country Fayre without mentioning the woman herself. It’s Janet Drew’s personal drive, enthusiasm and energy that is among the key components to the quality and success of her product. Janet’s Country Fayre delicious chutneys and sauces are available nationwide from food shops and retailers; spot the distinctive square jars with their mauve labels.
When Janet Drew began making pickles at home in 1995, she had no idea that this was to become her life and livelihood. Janet’s Country Fayre is now Ireland’s leading artisan producer of chutneys and relishes, pasta sauces and pizza sauces. The products are cooked using the traditional method of slow reduction over several hours to give the perfect flavour and finish of texture. No pectin or any other setting or bulking agents are used and all the products are produced without artificial additives and are gluten-free.
Over the years, Janet has built relationships with her vegetable, seed, herb, nut and spice suppliers, guaranteeing that each and every piece of produce is vetted by herself and comes with local, fresh and quality credentials. This has led to the development of new products to be paired especially with other Irish produce, such as the Fig and Apricot Chutney which goes so well with James McGeough’s iconic air-dried lamb. No meal is complete without a spoonful of Janet’s Country Fayre!
Alongside classic products like the award-winning Sweet Pepper Relish, there’s also pizza and pasta sauces produced under Janet’s sister brand, Janet’s Just Delicious. It’s currently the only brand of tomato sauces on sale in Ireland with both no added sugar or salt.
You can find Janet’s delicious products in specialist food shops in Dublin and nationwide, including fellow Good Food Ireland® members Cavistons, Donnybrook Fair and Urru Culinary Store.
