The Kitchen's Buzzing December 01 2014
Our kitchen at Skeld Community Hall has been buzzing, the pans have been ramping (boiling) as we keep up production to meet pre-Christmas orders from across the UK as well as the shops closer to home.
Our products are now in both Scoop's and Shetland Cheese's Christmas hampers, in the shop on the Northlink Ferries (Hjatland and Hrossey), doing well online with deliveries going out to all over the UK, and of course available now across Shetland in both Lerwick and country shops (see our Stockists page for the current list of outlets). For customers outside of Shetland, our Online Shop has been doing a roaring trade, too!
We have a very exciting New Year ahead of us with lots of interest in our products. In January, Jill is visiting the Speciality Food Fair in Glasgow for the first time to meet retailers and buyers from the mainland. It's more of an exploratory trip than anything else, but we are keen to see what the feedback is like. If folk across the rest of the UK love our products as much as Shetland folk, we're going to do well!
We wanted to say a muckle (big) Shetlandeli thank you to all our customers, fans, friends and collaborators. We only launched three months ago but, my, what a fantastic time we have had. Thank you to everyone for their help and support. Here's to an equally exciting 2015!
