Kansas City Canning Co. is the creator of several of The Sundry’s most popular products. Tim & Laura Tuohy are the husband & wife team that creates these wonderful Made In KC jars of deliciousness. Beyond being immensely talented at their craft, they are equally lovely human beings! So here they are in their own words describing the history, motivation, & goals of Kansas City Canning Co.:
Created from a mutual love of canning and preserving, we created Kansas City Canning Co. to forge a modern approach to the craft of food preservation. Specializing in pickles, preserves and cocktail goods- we’re looking to elevate the “canned” good- utilizing as much locally sourced produce and product as possible.
Embracing unique flavor profiles in our recipe formulation, we’re challenging normal constructs of preserved goods and thinking progressively about palates, uses and balance. We celebrate local and sustainable ways to preserve seasons, moments and memories in food using artisanal and traditional canning techniques stretching far back into our family trees. Each jar is hand-packed, hand-labeled and hand-batched in methods which require tender care and time- we hope you can taste our commitment to the craft in each of our products.
Creating and sustaining relationships, dialog and community through food is the absolute core of what we do. Our relationships with our growing partners have developed out of a mutual value of collaboration, curated through integrity of product, growing practices and local commerce.
Kansas City Canning Co.’s growing partners include New Roots for Refugees, Boys Grow, and Uproot Market and Farm. We look forward to many exciting partnerships with KCCCo in the near future as well as the positive energy and joy they bring to The Sundry each time they visit the store!
