Award-winning jam maker, acclaimed pastry chef and restaurateur, Sarabeth Levine, remains the driving force behind the success and outstanding reputation of the Sarabeth brand. Sarabeth’s personal search for perfection extends to everything she creates.
Sarabeth's award-winning "Legendary Spreadable Fruit", which had its beginning in Sarabeth and her husband and business partner, Bill Levine's Manhattan apartment with a few jars being sold to local businesses, is now being produced in a 15,000 s.f. factory in the Bronx, still being operated by Sarabeth and Bill. They are sold in the finest department stores, gourmet shops and specialty stores throughout the United States, the Caribbean, Canada, Japan and South Korea and have achieved a reputation as the finest fruit spreads and jams in the gourmet industry. From that humble beginning, Sarabeth with her husband, now own and operate a jam factory, a wholesale-retail bakery café and nine restaurants. It is a true American success story.
