Crossogue Preseves creates over 85 varieties of handmade jams, curds, marmalades, chutneys, spreads and coulis on the Crossogue estate which sits on the banks of the river Suir, in the parish of Holycross/Ballycahill, famous for its restored Cistercian monastery, Holycross Abbey.
The artisan preserves company was founded by Veronica Molloy in 1995, a mother of six and grandmother of thirteen grandchildren, she grew up in Kenya, Africa, and settled in Tipperary and had been making jams for local country markets and delis, she then expanded her outfit due to the popularity of her products and thus Crossogue Preserves was born.
25 years on, Veronica with the help of her husband Tony and her loyal team of jam makers supplies shops, delis and specialised outlets throughout Ireland and internationally with Crossogue Preserves’ products. As well as creating old favourites, such as strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant, Veronica has invented many unique and delicious flavours including Irish Coffee Curd, Lime Tequila Marmalade and a No Added Sugar Spread delicacy. Despite growing demand for the preserves, they are still made in batches of 20 jars and are free from preservatives and additives.
