The Original Orkney Hamper Company was born 18 years ago.
“We became aware that the quality of food & drink produce that we enjoyed here in Orkney would appeal to a larger market place via mail order. Tourists who visited our islands comments included the lack of supply of certain items with cheese and oatcakes being the most popular, out with Orkney. This was the conception of The Original Orkney Hamper Company.” George Loudon
The company has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, and the range has increased dramatically with over 30 different suppliers of quality produce all within Orkney. This includes island cheese smoked locally both mild and dark and Birsay tomatoes smoked and then Orkney Preserves produce a smoked tomato chutney exclusively.
In 1999 they received the best retailer award for promoting Orkney produce.
