About St. Dalfour
St. Dalfour’s story starts in the French countryside during the First World War, where so many were faced with extreme limitations in basic foods. To make do, friends relied on each other’s generosity. Such a friend was a neighboring Winegrower who gave our founder’s grandmother grape “must”, a sweet byproduct of wine making, to use as a substitute for the white sugar that was in limited supply.
Grandmother worked with the vineyard grape juice and refined these “sugar-less” recipes. The result was a healthier, more delicious fruit spread that became the family favourite. Years later, with the encouragement of some enterprising friends, these family favourites were brought to market. Our French made fruit spreads are now served in over 100 countries.
