Orkney Food & Drink Awards 2016 WINNER - Best Dairy-Based Supplier/Producer
Maker of the famous Orkney Ice Cream, the Orkney Creamery is also the main producer of milk in the islands, supplying to households, shops and supermarkets throughout the county.
Owned by the Bichan family and run from their farm at Crantit near Kirkwall, the Orkney Creamery has evolved over the past 60 years to become one of the most innovative and respected businesses in the Scottish dairy sector.
The firm first created its ice cream in 1995, as growing consumer demand for low fat milk created a surplus of cream at its Crantit dairy. The high quality luxury ice cream produced proved an instant hit and has gone on to become one of the most popular brands in Scotland.
Now available in a range of delicious flavours – with more being added regularly – Orkney Ice Cream has won a string of awards over the years and been voted Best Artisan Ice Cream in the UK.
