It was under threat by 'impostors'

In 2009, the Stornoway black pudding was under threat. Black puddings labeled as “Stornoway” were being made outside of the Western Isles, causing the authentic Isle of Lewis butchers to suffer.

At the time, more than 1,500 people signed a petition to stop the misuse of the Stornoway label. It has been granted a protected status


Campaigners finally saw success in May 2013, when Stornoway Black Pudding was granted protected status by the European Union. It was granted a PGI (or Protected Geographical Indicator of Origin), meaning that producers outside of Stornoway could no longer use the “Stornoway” label.
