EMI ET LOU
The real jam
Two lovely first names for products born out of a mix of gourmet flavours and authenticity.
Renaud Craenhals and Christophe de Viron are childhood friends who both have a business background, which says nothing about their epicurean sins: they both love sweet breakfasts!
When they were barely 15 years old, the two boys were already delivering fresh rolls and buns on their bicycles to earn some pocket money.
Growing up, the appeal of products with real taste, the ones that make a weekend brunch so delicious, led them to make something that didn’t meet their standards: jars of 100% natural jam, the kind that make you want to plunge immediately your fingers in to taste. Their original intention was to make something they dreamt of, to share with their children and families: the idea that, sometimes, pleasure can be put into a jar!
- 100% NATURAL –
Our products are completely natural without added colouring, preservatives or flavours.
- A UNIQUE TASTE –
Our jams have the taste we dreamt of. The fruits melt between tongue and palate, barely aware of the bread. They are fragrant and always perfectly balance tartness and sweet.
- MADE IN BELGIUM -
They are proudly made in Belgium.
- HANDCRAFT –
We are always seeking perfection. We prepare the jams in 5kg copper cauldrons using artisanal methods.
- AUTHENTICITY –
We package our jams in 215g jars to be able to vary tastes without having to finish the jar sitting in the refrigerator. Fine, elegant, Art Deco labels reflect our taste for simplicity.
- SPECULOOS –
Speculoos is delicious, but also delicate. When they are baked, some will unfortunately break. Instead of throwing them away, we are proud to recuperate the broken once from a famous Belgian producer for our confiloses.
The Emi and Lou jams are produced by two passionate Belgians.
These thirty-something entrepreneurs developed their own recipes, varying combinations based on the fruit used to perfectly wed fruit and sugar.
These are real jams made with top-quality, 100% natural ingredients, extra, with no colouring or preservatives, just sugar and lemon. Our healthy, simple products go well with everything: bread, yogurt, pastries or just with a spoon.
