The Taste of Shetland Festival is the stand-out event in the Shetland calendar for everyone involved in food and drink.

It brings together the best that Shetland has to offer in local produce with a wide range of businesses supporting, retailing and promoting local food and drink. Last year, we had over 3,000 visitors - including over 1,400 on the Saturday alone - and the event helped to generate thousands of pounds worth of sales for the stallholders present as well as some amazing PR for every business attending.

Getting signed up and ready for the fair was easy. Communications were clear, informative and helpful. There was a great atmosphere in the hall even whilst setting up, everyone was willing to help and share advice. Once the doors opened it was clear to see that all the work that went into the Festival was well worth it.

We were blown away by the amount of new people stopping by the stall, everyone of them keen to try new produce and find out about Anderson Butchers. The Festival is a great platform for introducing new produce and get feedback from the public.

The seafood sector is a major part of the Shetland food and drink industry, so we felt it was important to show our support by exhibiting at the Food Fair in 2016.

Our aim was to raise the profile of our industry, and highlight the range, quality and versatility of Shetland fish and shellfish. We achieved that - and more. We were delighted by the number of people visiting our stand. The level of interest in the variety of seafood on display and the quantity of produce that we sold during the event far exceeded our expectations.
