What inspired Sharon Lee to launch Straits Preserves in 2014?

“We had an abundance of calamansi limes growing on our balcony, which resulted in me learning ways to preserve them. This led to the idea of making marmalade.” Since then, she’s grown the uniquely Asian marmalade brand and, more recently, created her own “Singapore take on peanut butter” that blends peanuts, coconut and sea salt. The clever name? Peaconut.
