Our Story

I moved to America a few years back for a very special lady, now my wife. Longing for the classic flavours and tastes of home, I ditched the corporate life, and launched Jolly Posh Foods.

The company was born from my personal longing for the traditional taste of hearty, butchers-style sausages, and the lean, unique flavour of authentic dry-cured back bacon. All our products reflect my heritage, and are lovingly and locally made in Chicago, IL to my time-honoured, traditional recipes.

Our Journey

From our inception in 2009, we’ve been focused on our single purpose – to provide you with a true taste of home. Our journey began by selling in local Farmers Markets in and around Chicago. 

We have steadily grown into a quintessential British food business, and now sell our gourmet meats to households, retailers, restaurants, and distributors across the USA.

Our online store enables you to ship our meat products anywhere in the USA and achieves what we always set out to do – provide you with a true taste of home.
