Our Story

Hi, I’m Hannah Schofield the manager of ‘Orchardlea Occasion Foods’ which was launched in 2020 as a new business venture to compliment my husband’s family-owned business, ‘Isca Foods’.
Firstly thank you for taking the time to visit the website and reading our story.

Isca Foods is a long-standing, successful food wholesaler, which is owned by my husband, Liam and father-in-law, Tim. They have been trading for 25 years from Sowton Industrial Estate, Exeter.

The idea for Orchardlea Occasion Foods came to me after I had my two little girls (Rosie and Molly) and being asked to supply food for some friends weddings as well as our own .
I had previously been working as a Civil Servant at Exeter Combined Court for 12 years but decided it was time for a new, exciting challenge and the opportunity to work alongside my husband’s already successful business seemed like an obvious choice.

Our ethos is to provide, flexible, premium, high-quality cold buffet food for weddings and events of all kinds, at wholesale prices. We are proud to work with a variety of local suppliers from Devon produced pies and savouries to small batch, artisan cheeses and locally baked sourdough breads.

We can supply food for any sized group to any occasion or event. Food can be collected from our unit in Exeter free of charge, or can be delivered to any venue/home address/office for a small delivery charge.

We have an array of priced per head packages available, including ‘The Ploughmans, Devon Picnic Package and Cheeseboard package’s. You can also choose your own buffet food to best suit your budget and requirements, we have a large product list with plenty of choice.

We also have a fantastic selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free products and we are always trying to add and adapt this range.

If there is something you would like that we don’t currently supply let us know and we will try our best to source it for you, we are always adding to and adapting our product range to best suit our customers.

We are friendly, approachable, adaptable and reliable and we look forward to hearing from you and hopefully being apart of your special occasion or event.
