Founded in 1988 on the Craufurdland Castle Estate, Kilmarnock, Braehead Foods has become synonymous with fine food and game. Managing Director Craig Stevenson purchased the company in 1999 with the aim of making high quality foods more readily available to chefs.
In April 2008, Braehead moved into their new purpose-built factory at Moorfield Park Industrial Estate, Kilmarnock. At 30,000 square feet it is more than 6 time larger than the previous factory and allows them to meet demand for more quality game and fine food distribution and processing.
As well as increasing the range and capacity of products available, the new building will also house a demonstration kitchen, a cook school, restaurant, take-away and shop thus promoting the Braehead brand to more people through the introduction of direct sales to the public.
Braehead Foods quality game products are now augmented by a wide selection of cheeses sourced throughout Europe, dry goods, Belgain chocolate and other specialist food products from some of the world's leading manufacturers, including of course, Taste of Arran.
