About Us

Home / About Us

Just as Helen B’s fans treasure our products, we treasure your support. And for that, we make our preserves carefully from quality, local, and all natural ingredients. We work around the clock to provide the best to our customers. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that bring people together to make lasting memories.

Almost two decades in the making, Helen B’s is an ever growing Nova Scotia company that is forward looking. We create our products with a passion for quality and local ingredients. Our mission is to share Nova Scotia’s high grade produce with the rest of the world while also helping to preserve the tradition of coming together over good food with friends and family. We love hearing stories about how grandma used to make it and how our products are reminiscent of the old days. As innovators, we also love inspiring people to try new things. With our unique flavour combinations you can intrigue your dinner party guests or spice up your plate and savour a delicious, quiet meal for two.

Our voyage to Nova Scotia

Central Park, NYC 2011

We took a leap… We didn’t know where we would land, but we found a niche and a demand to serve.

In July 2011, just after getting married in NYC, Michael and Amelia Bishop took over a small but very successful market grown preserves business with a vision to grow and innovate. Gradually, over a short period of time new partnerships were formed and Helen B’s got a new brand, new retail locations and many new friends.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: its the courage to continue that counts.”
