Wightlink is teaming up with The Isle of Wight Biscuit Company of Arreton to sell the company’s mouth-watering goods.

Its tasty treats, including dinosaur and red squirrel shaped biscuits, are now on sale on Wightlink’s ships and at its Island ports.

The ferry company already sells Island produce from the Garlic Farm, The Isle of Wight Ice Cream Company, Isle of Wight Sweet Company, Goddards brewery and The Isle of Wight Ice Cream Company.

Head of Business Operations, Sean Millward, said:

“Islanders already know these locally based shortbread, cookies and gingerbread treats are delicious but we want to make it easy for our customers from the mainland to get a real ‘taste of the Wight’ as they cross the Solent”.

Sean is keen to hear from other Island companies who would like to become partners with Wightlink and sell their produce on board ships and at terminals. Anyone interested should email [email protected].

Mo Wilde, who has been baking at the Isle of Wight Biscuit Company for more than 20 years has said:

“We are thrilled to bits to get together with Wightlink and hope to win new fans for our biscuits”.
