The History of Scottish Food

The History of Scottish Food


With our rich rivers and seas, and fertile fields, Scotland has been blessed with great produce. While some of our culinary traditions date back thousands of years, other Scottish food and drink trends are just getting started.


Scotland has always been a place of abundant natural resources. The earliest hunter-gatherers caught their food in the rivers and on the hillsides. Archaeological evidence from settlements during the age of the Picts, Gaels, and Celts shows that they kept cattle, sheep, and pigs, and grew basic crops like oats and barley.


Thanks to the abundance of life in our lochs, rivers, and seas, Scotland is one of the biggest exporters of seafood in the world. Now, we can home-deliver all this wonderful Scottish food by post and mail. Scottish salmon was the first foreign product to gain France’s prestigious ‘Label Rouge’ quality mark, while more than a third of the world’s langoustines are sourced in Scotland.


From Aberdeen Angus beef and Stornoway black pudding to Orkney cheddar cheese, food farmed and made here in Scotland has made a name for itself in every corner of the world.
