Gusto Artisan Foods celebrate 5 years of success driven by innovation

over 2 years AGOIain Fenwick Gourmet Gossip

Gusto Artisan Foods in Edinburgh have had a fantastic 2016 to date. Having won the Business Innovation award at this year’s CIS Excellence Awards, Gusto are now embarking on a new chapter in their eventful life.

With a new website due to launch in August and new products being introduced on a regular basis, Gusto are going from strength to strength.

This year at Foodies Festival in Edinburgh, Gusto will be celebrating their 5th anniversary. What began life in Leith, Edinburgh. Originally known simply as ‘Gusto-Catering’, the business was born when owners Rachael and Steve decided to change their lives and buy a street food truck to feed the masses at festivals and events throughout Scotland.

Rachael’s creativity extended to making sauces, marinades and dressings to accompany the various dishes Gusto was providing, and more and more customers asked if these were available to buy too. This led to some experimental offerings at Stockbridge Market, in Edinburgh, and the launch of Gusto Artisan Foods in August 2012.

Since then, Gusto Artisan Foods has built a strong reputation in the premium products market. Gusto dressingsoils and balsamics have had great feedback and have won some prestigious awards, most notably from the BBC Good Food Show as an “exceptional British producer” in 2012, and a Great Taste Gold Award in 2013, before scooping this year’s CIS award.

One of their new products is EATFARMACY “USING NATURE’S PHARMACY TO BOOST YOUR HEALTH”. EATFARMACY is about great tasting foods which fuse science & gastronomy to create products which are both delicious and good for you. Scottish cold-pressed rapeseed oil, enriched with DHA, an important long-chain fatty acid, part of the Omega3 family, previously only found in oily fish.

This example of pioneering ingenuity is what sets Gusto Artisan Foods apart. Their infused salts and ever growing range of sauces are being used by chefs and other caterers at festivals across Scotland, and further collaborations are in the pipeline.

To be kept up to date with what is happening at Gusto Artisan Foods, you can subscribe to their Newsletter by emailing and if you can visit them at Edinburgh Farmer’s Market on Saturdays and Stockbridge Market on Sundays.
