About us

Who are Taste of the West?

Taste of the West is a unique membership organisation for food and drink producers, distributors, restaurants, cafes, pubs, hotels, farm shops and speciality retailers in the South West - all passionate about the provenance and quality of the products they make, serve or sell. Our organisation is the largest independent regional food group in the UK and we work hard to promote and support fantastic local food and drink from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire.

Our company was established in 1991, and today we remain the leading supply chain co-operative for the South West's food and drink industry. We operate as a commercial company that is owned by over 1,000 members from producers to distributors, foodservice, retailers and marketing specialists. Our ethos of quality and integrity is underpinned by our annual awards scheme - the largest regional awards programme in the UK - for products, as well as shops, restaurants, pubs, hotels and cafes. Visit our Awards page to find out how your business can get involved.
