The Hebridean Food Company, founded by Douglas Stewart in 2014 was created with the goal of disrupting overly processed supermarket food lacking character and origin. The Hebridean Food Company’s mission was to bring local food made with passion, heritage and a story to supermarket shelves and customers throughout the UK.
Since the successful Crowdcube raise in 2016 the company has been gaining traction, by 2018 the company's products had been stocked in 4 major supermarkets and is currently in talks with 3 others. In 2019 the company signed an agreement with a major supermarket with the intention to provide them with over 500,000 units of own brand soups per annum, this shows that our concept and vision is proving popular with Supermarkets and customers. Other retail clients include Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Wholefoods market and independents.
The company has experienced 172% revenue growth compared to the previous 12 months with sales of £272,966 between May 2018 and April 2019. EBITDA of (£6,180).
The business has invested heavily in product development, working closely with a world class chef to further develop new products in the ready meal market as well as extending our range of fresh soups.
