The National Trust for Scotland is Scotland’s leading conservation charity, and a supporter of the Edible Edinburgh Charter.
Fiona Morley, Head of Food and Beverage for The National Trust for Scotland, sets out why:
“Good food is important to us as we know that offering suitable refreshments is a key part of offering a fantastic visitor experience.
“We have strong roots in Edinburgh: our head office is based here and we have several properties open to the public and members within the city. We support the Edible Edinburgh charter by actively working with local producers to ensure that we are able to offer a full range of products with great local provenance for our visitors and staff.
“Our menus focus on wholesome home cooking – from fresh soups to innovative cakes. We change our menus seasonally and use home-grown produce where we can. We support local producers and one of our properties, Newhailes, has the Taste our Best accreditation from Visit Scotland.
“Good food is key to health and wellbeing and adds value to a great visitor experience, so we are firm supporters of the principles behind the Edible Edinburgh Charter. We would like to continue to work with quality local producers in Edinburgh and the Lothians wherever possible and showcase their products within our properties. They add value to our properties and we want to continue to share this passion with our members and visitors.”
