A ray of sunlight for you

Wednesday, April 08, 2020


We are all facing challenges and uncertainty right now and during these times we look to the security of our favourite things to cheer us up.

We are here to help in the form of some of your favourite jams and chutneys.
Life in Hank’s Kitchen is bustling these days as we cook our way through this time.
We continue to supply our beloved Cafe, Restaurant and Retail Stockist customers - support them won’t you?

You can also enjoy the pleasure and comfort of Hank’s products at home. Head on over to our online store - it’s one of the few places that browsing is permitted and even encouraged!

Order online and we’ll wrap up your order and have it delivered to your door.

We’re all in this together, stay safe.

Time for a refresh. Introducing our new look!

Wednesday, March 20, 2019


We've been busy cooking up a refresh of our labelling. Designed as a result of the new labelling laws from July 1 2018, the labels need to state the country of origin. The new labels will reveal where products are produced, grown, made and packed, as well as what percentage of the ingredients come from Australia.
According to the Government, it’s been introduced to help Australians better understand what they are buying.
 
So we took the opportunity to freshen up our brand at the same time, tackling the retail 285g jars first off. We'll be working through our range over the coming months. Keep an eye out at your local Stockist for the new look.
 
But remember it’s still the best jam anywhere….

We've made a fresh batch of our famous Blood Plum Jam

Sunday, August 05, 2018


Last December a NSW farmer came to Hanks door directly selling his blood plum
surplus crop. Hank’s is always supportive of local farmers from NSW so we did not
hesitate to purchase a great quality product.
We took these beautiful plums straight into the Kitchen and got to work making
our famous Blood Plum Jam.
We know this Jam has an almost cult-like following, so don’t miss out!
You can buy it online right here.
