Orange Preserve, Royal Bhutan Argo
- Technical Details
Marmalade is a fruit preserve made from the juice and peels of citrus fruits boiled with sugar and water. The well-known version is made from bitter orange, but it is also made from lemons, limes, grapefruits, mandarins, sweet oranges, bergamots, and other citrus fruits, or a combination. Citrus is the most typical choice of fruit for marmalade, though historically the term has often been used for non-citrus preserves.
The preferred citrus fruit for marmalade production is the Spanish Seville or bitter orange, Citrus aurantium var. Aurantium, prized for its high pectin content, which sets readily to the thick consistency expected of marmalade. The peel imparts a bitter taste.

Bhutan Agro Industries Limited (BAIL) is a fruit and vegetable-processing company nestled in the heart of the eastern Himalayas, in Bhutan. It was established in 1993 with the financial and technical assistance of the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).
BAIL is located far from the madding crowd in a pristine environment surrounded by lush trees at Wangchutaba. It is a 12km drive from the core city, Thimphu.
BAIL is not an entirely commercial entity. It is an enterprise to help uplift the Bhutanese rural economy by creating market opportunities for farmers. The company achieves this objective by buying surplus horticulture produces, which is also the main source of the company’s raw materials.
