Orkney Food and Drink
Orkney's food and drink producers are enormously proud of what they bring to the marketplace, and they also keen to enhance and promote the famous Orkney brand.
They recognise the need to protect and enhance the islands’ reputation for quality and take their role as ambassadors extremely seriously. That's why increasing numbers of local producers are joining membership organisation Orkney Food and Drink (OFD).
OFD's aim is to develop Orkney's food and drink industry through joint representation and promotion at local and national level, spearheading a collective commitment to quality and supporting the efforts of members to maintain the highest of standards across all elements of their business.
