Mill Pond Cannery and Preserves Company

Welcome to Mill Pond Cannery and Preserves Company

Mill Pond Cannery and Preserves is a Canadian company that produces all-natural products that contain NO additives or preservatives, NO refined sugar, NO high-fructose corn syrup, no commercial pectin or any added pectin at all, and in fact NO artificial sweeteners of any kind. We use only the old-fashioned sweeteners, such as 100% Canadian honey and maple syrup. We kettle-cook our products slowly to produce honest, luscious products that not only taste authentic, but in fact ARE authentic.

Our vision and values

We are a proud Canadian company which produces an outstanding line of all-natural fruit butters, a traditional preserve-type product, made with 100% Canadian-grown ingredients, with a touch of Canadian honey, and a dash of indigenous Canadian herbs such as sweetgrass, red clover and lavender.

We believe there is too much refined sugar in our diets, so our products don't contain any refined sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, or artificial sweeteners of any kind.  We believe that the skins of most fruits should be eaten rather than thrown away (and losing the inherent fibre in the skins), so our products contain not just the pulp of the fruit, but also the skins.  We don’t add any preservatives, additives or colouring to our products.  We don't believe in adding commercial pectin, which is typically used to accelerate the cooking and thickening process...our products are kettle-cooked slowly, and result in a naturally thick and flavourful fruit butter.  Talking about traditions...fruit butter is an old recipe, handed down over the generations but seldom commercially-produced in favour of highly-sugared jams and jellies which take a lot less time (and fruit) to produce commercially. 

Mill Pond Cannery and Preserves Company products are produced to the highest quality standards in a CFIA-inspected, nut-free, small-batch processing facility.  Our current product line is composed of six outstanding fruit butters:  Pear and Sweetgrass, Plum and Lavender, Apple and Red Clover, Peach and Passion Flower, Blueberry-Cranberry and White Willow, and our new product Elderberry and Wild Ginger – all made with 100% Canadian-grown fruit.
