Bute Kitchen is a collaboration of multi award winning food and drink producers, suppliers and hospitality providers that aim to showcase the talent, passion and quality that exists on the island of Bute.
This year the finest female food and drink entrepreneurs from Bute Kitchen are coming together to celebrate International Women's Day. This year’s IWD theme is about breaking the bias and creating a more diverse and gender free stereotypical world.
Over 70% of their producers are female and the board of trustees is completely made up of women.
“We are extremely proud to be a strong predominantly female group of food and drink producers, who are proactively changing the preconception of Island living and challenging those male dominated sectors by paving the way for future generations of female entrepreneurs on the island.”Founder of Isle of Bute Gin and Bute Kitchen Producer Rhona Madigan-Wheatley
Entrepreneurship is at the core of what Bute Kitchen stands for and the enterprise recently secured funding from Highlands & Islands Enterprise (HIE) to allow key hospitality training to be conducted, in a bid to encourage the younger generation, and also those looking to change careers post pandemic, to retrain and retain hospitality talent on the island.
