In 2005 His Royal Highness, Duke of Rothesay, launched the North Highland Initiative (NHI) which aims to promote the economic development and sustainability of the North Highlands of Scotland. One of the aims of the Prince’s Initiative is to foster closer connections between farmers, micro- food producers, and consumers.
On Monday 20th May we celebrated with our carcass competition winners. Click here to read the full story.
Mey Selections is the products brand of NHI’s trading company, North Highland Products Ltd and since 2005 a range of products have carried the brand name and logo, incorporating a watercolour of the Castle of Mey painted by His Royal Highness. Currently, the brand extends to beef, lamb, biscuits and oatcakes and tweed manufactured into fashion and home fabrics. Whatever the product, to carry the Mey brand means that it has a quality based on provenance and underpinned by the fact that any funds raised from the sales are reinvested by the Initiative in projects to help sustain this fragile highland rural economy.

Each year, the NHI Group raises funds for a North Highlands Charity. In 2012, through various activities, we raised over £2000 for North Highland Cancer Information and Support Centre and Caithness Deaf Care. In 2013 we are raising funds for Befriending Caithness.
