Genuinely Jersey?
Look for the mark before you buy says Genuine Jersey Association
by John Garton, Chief Executive GJA

Genuine Jersey was launched in 2001 to promote the diversity and quality of local produce and products. Since then it has attracted a loyal and enthusiastic membership. While some members ensure the survival of Jersey’s heritage and traditions, others are at the forefront of introducing pioneering farming methods, new crops or exploring previously untapped international markets. Genuine Jersey produce and products can be bought in many Parish outlets – including, galleries, studios, tourist attractions and heritage sites, farm shops and markets and sampled in restaurants, pubs, cafés and from ice cream stalls. John Garton told La Baguette: “Jersey is famous worldwide for its own breed of cow and superior quality milk and the prized Jersey Royal, but the Island can also be proud of an abundance of fresh, seasonal produce and a variety of skilled craftsmen and artists who create a range of excellent products”. “If you want to enjoy the best of what Jersey has to offer then look for the Genuine Jersey mark – the guarantee of local provenance”.
“Products and produce carrying this distinctive mark have been reared, grown or caught in Jersey and/or created by accredited Islanders and local businesses who qualify to be members of the Genuine Jersey Association. Products include dairy goods, fruit and vegetables, herbs and salads, meat and poultry, fish and shellfish, pottery, wines, spirits and beers, jewellery, needlework, decorative stonework, wooden artifacts, glassware and artworks”.
“Today the Genuine Jersey mark is seen as a by word for the best the Island has to offer”.
“Look for it before you buy”.
