Variety really is the spice of life in Dorset! With a collection of some of the most varied landscapes in the country comes a fantastic array of very distinctive local food and drink too.
With Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Dorset is famous for its magnificent landscape. The land and its communities have been shaped by 8000 years of farming and fishing, raising, growing and creating food and drink to feed their families. It is easy to see why this county is so proud of this heritage and continues to make, bake and invent products that impress.
Dorset AONB set up the Dorset Food & Drink initiaitive in 2011 and since then it has gone from strength to strength. It supports the local food and drink sector and helps bring together a mouth watering programme of food & drink events throughout the year.
Now an independent community interest company, Dorset Food & Drink has a membership of over 190 food and drink businesses based in Dorset who produce, serve and sell great local products, as well those who celebrate their connection to this beautiful county.
