About us
Scotland’s food champions

We don’t employ standard PR people. The new media landscape demands a fresh approach to getting your message across so our team consists of communications professionals with real experience.

We know how the food, drink and the media works from the inside.

Taste is led by company founder Stephen Jardine. One of the best known faces in the Scottish media, Stephen has worked as a journalist in print, radio and network television and still writes a weekly column in The Scotsman.

The Taste team includes Fiona Neville, Emma Craig, Caroline Carrick, Rosa Baak, Sheila Jardine and Rebecca Harvey who together deliver an unrivalled combination of communications experience gained in businesses ranging from Visit Scotland to Sainsbury’s.

Strategic advice is provided by Taste Chairman Peter Lederer – one of the most respected figures in Scottish business. For almost 10 years, Peter was Chairman of Visit Scotland and then went on to become Managing Director of Gleneagles Hotels. No-one can match his knowledge, experience and contacts across the food, drink and hospitality sector.
