The Orkney Creamery
The Orkney Creamery is a family business, first established in 1949. Although the farming business is still there today, albeit on a smaller scale, the business has developed into a creamery that supplies all of the liquid milk requirements for Orkney. In 1995, as consumers started to switch from full-fat milk to skimmed and semi-skimmed, the extra cream was used to produce luxury ice cream that could be sold across the whole of Scotland. In recent years the business has diversified into confectionery.
