Rootham Gourmet Preserves

Rootham Gourmet Preserves

Marilyn Rootham

Guelph, Ontario, Canada


We are a small, family owned and operated preserving company started in 1983. Through the years we have experienced many adventures as a business and a family. Marilyn Rootham, the owner and operator, has a background in nutrition and is a registered dietician.

Marilyn Rootham started the business in 1983 just after she had her first child, Will. There was an abundance of fresh produce in the garden and she began to jar the produce, coming up with some inventive and creative combinations including: Marinated Fiddleheads and our signature product Tangy Red Pepper Jelly. There was too much product to eat, and at that time her sister-in-law had a small store in Muskoka. Marilyn’s sister-in-law offered to take some product to sell. And the rest, as they say, is history.
