The Guild was formed in 1995 with a mission to support and encourage artisan food and drink producers and the independent delicatessens, farm shops and food halls that mainly stock and sell their food and drink.

With over 1,300 members across the UK, the Guild organises and implements a network of activities designed to promote excellence in all sectors of the trade and build closer links between producers and retailers.

In 2017 a new Members’ Hub will be launched online at Members will be able to communicate with one another and resources, offers and articles will be posted. A directory listing products not sold in supermarkets will be available to download, as well as a list of independent retailers.

The Guild of Fine Food is also the organisation that publishes Fine Food Digest, Good Cheese, Best Brands and Great Taste Book, the industry’s leading magazines. We organise Great Taste and the World Cheese Awards, run the Fine Food Show North and a number of Great Taste Markets, as well as train individuals in cheese, deli products and in business matters relating to fine food retail.

We’re at the centre of it all.  Be a part of it.
