The inspiration behind Marshall and Brown came from Dr Carlton Brown’s mother, who is 97, and his mother-in-law.
The company is named after these two wonderful matriarchs – Olive Brown and Eugenia Marshall – who were both born on the beautiful island of Jamaica. They were both amazing cooks and on Sundays, one of their family traditions was to have a dish that had been marinated or seasoned with Jerk seasoning.
He grew up around food, family, friends, music, fun and the rich heritage of Jamaican culture. Whilst on holiday in Jamaica four years ago, he began thinking about his heritage and how he could pay homage to both his mother and mother-in-law.
The common thread was food – Jamaica is a hotbed of interesting and wonderful flavours and spices, with a rich and diverse heritage. One of the most famous traditions within Jamaica is to jerk, and as both his mother and mother-in-law were passionate cooks, it became the obvious choice that he wanted to bring something contemporary to the market.
The brands within the family of Marshall & Brown include:
* The Jerk House sauces
* Mama Brown’s Cakes
* Marshall & Brown Rum Truffles & Vegan Rum Truffles
* Marshall & Brown Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee (October 2020)
