SHETLAND Islands Council has launched its first Shetland Food Directory.
The directory will be available in booklet form this weekend at Flavour of Shetland on Victoria Pier and later through Visit Shetland, the Shetland Museum and Archives and the Shetland Library.
Copies will be available to all companies in the directory for distribution to their customers. It is also available online at www.foodshetland.com.
Any business or individual who would like copies of the directory should contact Fiona Dally on (01595) 744964 for more details.
The directory highlights the variety of local produce that is available in Shetland and provides an easily accessible resource, for locals and tourists alike, which will list local producers and where their products are available. The directory also includes a useful local “eating out” section.
SIC vice convener Josie Simpson said: “This is an excellent project to promote our exceptional quality local produce and the directory provides essential information for consumers to be able to track down local and seasonal food. Using more of what we grow and make is also a vital way of enhancing our economy and reducing our carbon footprint, through reduced food miles.”
