Arran Fine Foods have operated from their small factory for nearly forty years, when they first started producing mustards from a tiny kitchen on the island. Now owned by Patterson Arran Ltd, over time their product range has developed to include relishes, chutney, preserves, marmalades and salad dressings. These use Robin's Herbs, grown locally in soil fertilised with wild seaweed from the shores of Whiting Bay on Arran, as well as elephant garlic and fresh beetroot grown alongside the herbs. Six chutneys include the likes of Apple & Arran Ale and Madras Fruit; there are seven types of mustard and seven jams, as well as four marmalades - orange, with Glengoyne and Arran malt whiskies and ruby grapefruit.

The famous Arran Mustard features on nearly every menu all over the island – in sandwiches, for example, or as marinade for meat – and their ‘Provenance’ range uses local products. Local brewers also contribute ingredients; both the Apple & Arran Ale chutney and the Arran Malt Whisky thick-cut marmalade are worth trying.
