The East India Company Fine Foods is coming to Edinburgh  

Posted: 1st December 2015

As Christmas is fast approaching The East India Company would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our corporate gifting service. It was customary for The East India Company to bring gifts for the sovereign on returning ships from the East. Today, we continue the tradition of gifting with fine food hampers and gift boxes that are loved by all who experience them. Our team of specialists have crafted a collection of unique hampers and filled them with hand-picked delicacies. Our expertise and attention to detail ensure that your gift will surprise and delight, making it a lasting reminder of the occasion and your thoughtfulness.

The East India Company was established in 1600 by pioneering Scottish merchant adventurers under the royal charter issued by Queen Elizabeth I. They raced the waves in their great ships to bring unimaginable riches and mouth-watering treasures back home from distant lands. Spices and sugar, teas and coffee, sensational tastes and indulgent pleasures that captivated Kings and fashionable societies alike.

Whether it is a simple fine food gift box, a splendid tea chest for the Boardroom or a fantastic trunk filled with delicacies fit for an Emperor, we make sure our gifts present a wonderland of gourmet delights.

Our gifting solutions can also be tailored to your individual business needs. Our priority is to offer a superior service, assisting you through the process of finding the perfect gift for any occasion.
The bespoke gift hamper service offers the opportunity to customise your hamper or gift box. Allow our team to help you select each item, from fine teas and coffee to luxurious artisan chocolates.
