Cataloguing best of Scots produce

SCOTTISH produce from more than 100 suppliers across the country takes centre stage in the latest brochure from foodservice supplier Brakes Scotland.

The third annual Scottish brochure from the food wholesaler features more than 500 products, including artisan cheese from Tain, Eteaket tea from Edinburgh and new sorbets from Arran Dairies, as well as wild venison, haggis, and a raft of dairy products and Scottish craft beer brands.

Scotch beef, supplied by Scottish Gourmet in the Borders and sourced from quality assured farms throughout the country, is being sold under Brakes Scotland’s new fresh brand, Caledonia Farms; the wholesaler said more Scottish produce will be introduced under the brand this year.

The brochure also features a host of recipes from Masterchef the Professionals winner and City of Glasgow College lecturer Gary Maclean, who joined forces with Brakes Foodservice last March to support the wholesaler’s commitment to sourcing local products and promoting Scottish produce.

John McLintock, operations director for Brakes Scotland, said the brochure features “top quality produce”. “The focus this year and for next is firmly on fresh, quality Scottish produce and we are delighted to be promoting the best of the best,” he said.
