A nimble team, doing mighty things for Cornish food & drink...

In a nutshell...

In the food and drink stakes, Cornwall is a national and global force to be reckoned with.

From fertile land and clean seas, comes the finest fresh produce you'll find anywhere. From talented people, come taste and flavour to make you weak at the knees.  We’re on a mission to keep it that way, by making sure that the quality is unbeatable, the businesses are strong, the new ideas keep flowing and that the world knows about it.

So if you create, serve or sell great food or drink in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly you’ve come to the right place.  And if you’re looking for great Cornish food and drink ingredients or suppliers, or want to know more about the incredible people, places and products behind Cornwall’s magnificent reputation for food and drink, hop across to our sister site, Great Cornish Food.

We’re the only organisation dedicated entirely to making sure the collective strength of Cornish food and drink is celebrated and all the individual triumphs of our members grow and grow.

“Cornwall Food & Drink have been there for us from Day One. They were not afraid in 2010 to tell us that our thoughts and plans regarding re-inventing ourselves were less than brilliant and they helped us to identify a way forward. They have been there from time to time when we have needed a guiding hand since then and we have great regard for their knowledge and professionalism.”

Trevor O’Shea, Director
