1. What is your business all about?
Made by Katherine grew out of a long term hobby with condiment recipes passed down through the family. Traditional preserving methods are used to create award winning, high quality, exquisite products that are completely free of preservatives and artificial ingredients. In addition, we have developed a number of our own entirely original recipes. Our original Pear Lime & Chilli Chutney received a Bronze Medal in the 2016 Australian Food Awards. Our products are made with seasonal ingredients and we support local, small Victorian growers as far as possible.
2. What made you apply to Handmade?
We have a strong commitment to high quality, artisan produce, design and handmade goods that are made with care and attention to detail. It is for this reason that we applied for Handmade Canberra. Our products, branding and presentation sit well in these types of thoughtfully curated events. Our presentation and branding makes reference to a bygone era while pleasing our customers with a fresh, contemporary approach.
