Preserves

At the very verge of Eastern Poland, protected from the negative influences of civilization, stands the ancient Bialowieza Forest. Without humanity's involvement this extraordinary woodland abounds in different wildly growing large, juicy fruit. Year after year the inhabitants of the region are rewarded with its bounty.

Matecznik would like to bring this natural goodness to you. Thanks to traditional regional recipes in our jars we preserve the unique taste and health benefits of these fruit. Who else if not the locals who have lived here for generations would know the true taste and value of forest berries?

The year has 365 days and these wonderful tastes should be enjoyed every day, not only at harvest time.
