Our products carry the Made in Cornwall Logo
Cornwall County Council's Trading Standards Service launched The ‘Made in Cornwall’ scheme, or Approved Origin scheme as it is officially known, in 1991 to protect the identity of genuine Cornish products. It introduced the distinctive Engine House logo that members of the scheme can use on their products so that the public can buy goods safe in the knowledge that what they are purchasing is indeed Made in Cornwall.
Before products are allowed to carry the Made in Cornwall logo they need to be assessed by Trading Standards to ensure that they are indeed being made in Cornwall, that the business attempts to source ingredients or raw materials from within the County (with extra merit given to those that do) and that the finished products comply with the relevant UK and EU regulations. Therefore any business wishing to become a member of the Scheme will firstly receive a visit from the Trading Standards Team.
