About Us

The Original Orkney Hamper Company was born 18 years ago.

“We became aware that the quality of food & drink produce that we enjoyed here in Orkney would appeal to a larger market place via mail order. Tourists who visited our islands comments included the lack of supply of certain items with cheese and oatcakes being the most popular, out with Orkney. This was the conception of The Original Orkney Hamper Company.” George Loudon

The company has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, and we have increased our range dramatically, we have over 30 different suppliers of quality produce all within Orkney. This includes our island cheese smoked locally both mild and dark and Birsay tomatoes smoked and then Orkney Preserves produce a smoked tomato chutney exclusively for ourselves.

In 1999 we received the best retailer award for promoting Orkney produce.

We wanted to extend the products available for our hampers and gift boxes and now include Whiskey Truffles, Chocolate Honeys (a chocolate sphere filled with fondant and local Orkney honey). We are always on the lookout for new food and drink products for our hampers watch this space for further new exciting products

We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and maybe one day to Orkney.

Best wishes,
George Loudon
