Shetland Food & Drink Ltd was formed last year to grow and develop Shetland’s Food and Drink sector. We help our members share expertise and skills and learn from each other, work collaboratively to reduce costs in areas such as distribution, packaging and marketing and act as a collective voice. We proudly promote and market Shetland produce both locally and in external markets. We also involve children and schools and emphasise the benefits of using home produced food, and educate the local community and increase the use of Shetland produce.
Our launch in November last year included the creation of www.tasteofshetland.com - the home of Shetland’s food and drink profile. There is no other online outlet which talks about the wonderful produce which Shetland produces. It has generated interest from all over the world - including Norway, Australia, America, Italy and more.
As well as promoting Shetland's food and drink offering, we organise Shetland's high-profile events including the Up Helly Aa Food Market in January. Our flagship event is The Taste of Shetland Festival which this year will be on 5-7 October 2018, with Scotland's National Chef and Masterchef the Professionals winner Gary Maclean as headline.
