Why are there Elephants in the Pantry?

The Pantry bit is easy…

Simply, that is what we are- a superb collection of food and drinks you should have in your store at home.

As for the Elephants…

Well, philosophically their power and wisdom signifies our need to be more mindful about our food choices. Sentimentally our youngest daughter adores them!

Besides, never forget, elephants just love to eat!

Bit about Grantown…

We are a small, food focused, family business in the stunning Highlands of Scotland.

Home to over 2000 people, Grantown on-Spey, situated within the Cairngorms National Park, founded in 1765 by Sir James Grant, is the Capital of Strathspey. and this year becomes its 250th anniversary with many celebrations planned. It is a very popular tourist resort.

Being the gateway to the Malt Whisky Trail, Grantown on Spey holds various festivals often in the town Square through the year.  The Strathspey Steam Railway is due for extension from Aviemore to Grantown on Spey in the near future which will open access for more visitors to the town. In the vicinity the Cairngorm and Lecht mountain resorts offer winter sports facilities and hill walking.

The history bit...

Inspired by a love of creating meals for her own family from quality and traceable ingredients, our creator, Nicola looked to starting a business to encourage people to do the same for themselves and their families. She worked her much underused business head and learned lots about very boring admin matters and lots more about very interesting foodie facts. Baby elephants were born to be raised in the stunning Highlands of Scotland!

The dream bit...

Everything we do in the kitchen starts in the pantry.

At Elephants in the Pantry we want to help you to have everything you need to create a magnificent plate of food at home. Homecooking is a great way to spend quality time with family and friends. We all know the benefits of eating well and feeding our bodies and souls with the best we can. What better thing can we do than nourish our bodies and those of the people we love with excellent quality, responsibly sourced food? We need to embrace the rich wealth of fine foods from our own pantry, Scotland.

The discovery bit...

Our pantry stocks a wide range of produce from locally sourced products to international delights, favouring organic, fair trade and ethically sourced ingredients.

Discover delights from luxury chocolates and fresh coffee to unusual sauces and sumptuous spreads, from pastas and pulses to cheese and chorizo, from artisan teas and handmade treats to oats and oils and many, many more interesting ingredients.
