The artisanal butter, produced by the Island Smokery, is now being served at At.mosphere, the world’s highest restaurant, at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The Scottish company has also recently moved into a new factory in Stromness to accommodate the increased local, national and international demand for its products.
So far, 60kg of The Island Smokery’s Orkney Butter have been supplied to At.mosphere, which sits on the 122nd floor of the building. At 2,722 ft, the Burj Khalifa, which opened in 2010, is the world’s tallest building.
The butter has also found its way onto tables at the Gleneagles Hotel, in Perthshire.
Seeking new opportunities
The company is already supplying its smoked Orkney cheese to distributors in the US and has just secured a contract with UK supermarket chain, Morrisons.
Callum MacInnes, who established The Island Smokery in 2005 and developed the company with his wife, Fiona, said the company is always looking for opportunities in terms of new markets.
He said the Burj order came after Scottish foods distributor Braehead Foods took a sample of Orkney Butter to a food and drink expo event in Dubai.
MacInnes said there is a market in the region the company will look to explore with other products from its range.
Fiona MacInnes added The Island Smokery was in talks with companies in Austria and Singapore to supply its range of smoked Orkney cheeses.
