Savouring the islands


KANTAR stats showing Scots spending more than the GB average on savoury biscuits could have something to do with our love of traditional oatcakes.

Orkney firm Stockan’s should know a thing or two about oatcake appeal. It’s been making oatcakes for more than 100 years and now produces more than 150,000 a day.
The company reckons increasing health consciousness is fuelling an oatcake boom. Its island bakery produces a wide range – from classic triangles, to flavoured minis – and ships them from Orkney for sale through the rest of Scotland and across the world.
