Eas Fors is a new design led local knitwear business built on slow fashion principles. Brother and sister team Joe and Flora McFadden will design and manufacture high-quality, long-lasting knitwear clothing and accessories using high-quality lambswool from the island. Every step from concept to the finished garment will take place on Mull ensuring maximum use of local resources and minimum impact on the environment. Focussing initially on women's wear and accessories, the garments will be sold in shops on the Isle of Mull and more widely through their e-commerce website. Launching in 2022.

Wil Craig and Mollie Macfarlane expect to launch Seafood Eatfood in March 2022, supplying hospitality businesses in North Argyll and the Highlands with shellfish direct from the fresh waters around Mull. Offering langoustines, lobsters, brown crab, oysters and mussels and other local produce they hope to showcase to the rest of Scotland the amazing produce that the Island offers while buying directly from source.
