Food from Argyll
Originally founded in 2007, Food from Argyll is a well-established regional food group. Over the past 13 years the group has helped its members build their businesses, encouraged start-ups, opened its own café based at the Cal Mac ferry terminal, provided catering on two sites in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games in 2014, hosted a major conference on Food Tourism held in Oban in 2015, and catered at major events nationwide including International rugby fixtures at Murrayfield Stadium.
The group works closely with Argyll & The Isle Tourism Co-operative and is currently working on developing Food Tourism within Argyll plus Taste of Place Trails for visitors amongst other projects. Other partners include Scotland Food & Drink, the Scottish Tourism Alliance, SAOS and project support from Argyll & Bute Council and HIE.
As a coastal region, Argyll is famed for its seafood and smoked salmon, but it also boasts some of country’s best dairy, beef and lamb as well as a growing group of entrepreneurial producers baking, roasting, curing, smoking and growing a wide range of ingredients.
