Wholesalers go wild for Edinburgh food venue

WHOLESALERS Inverarity Morton and MacDuff 1890 have become the latest businesses to take space at the Bonnie & Wild Food Hall development in Edinburgh.

The companies will each take a retail space at the development, which has already signed restaurant names including The Gannet and acclaimed chef Gary Maclean.

Inverarity Morton will open a bottle shop at the food hall, marking the first time it has opened a retail site in Edinburgh, while MacDuff 1890, which supplies meat to foodservice businesses, will use its retail space to sell its beef, lamb and pork directly to the public for the first time.

“We desperately wanted Inverarity Morton to be a key part of Bonnie & Wild since the idea was first mooted, both as a supplier and as a concessionaire partner by way of the Inverarity Morton bottle shop,” said Inverarity Morton sales director, Steve Annand.

“Like Bonnie & Wild, and indeed every business taking a space in the venue, we are committed to sourcing from producers who are passionate about the quality of their product, whether it’s a craft spirit producer, a family owned vineyard or a well established distillery.”

MacDuff managing director, Andrew Duff, said MacDuff and Bonnie & Wild “share similar commitments to quality, sustainability and provenance”.

“To go in alongside our close friend and customer Peter McKenna at The Gannet is very fitting,” said Duff.

“I’m excited that MacDuff 1890 will be a key element of this ambitious Food Hall.”

Bonnie & Wild, part of the larger St James Quarter development, will open on 24th June.
