The listings mean the Ayrshire-based producer’s Chippy-Style Battered Pork Sausage and Chippy-Style Battered Black Pudding will appear in 125 of the convenience retailer’s stores across Scotland,
They come after the family-run business was named a ‘Scotmid Scottish Favourites’ winner last September. This saw the two products sold in Scotmid stores on a three-week promotional listing, where they proved popular with customers.
Founded in 2007, We hae meat is run by Carlyn Paton and her husband Alex, on the family farm in Ayrshire. With a commitment to developing products that are made from traditional recipes, while minimising their impact on the environment, the business implemented a comprehensive carbon management plan aimed at reducing on-site emissions in 2016.
Since then, prioritising sustainability and showcasing dedication to operating in an environmentally responsible manner has been We hae meat’s focus. A notable achievement in its sustainability efforts is the on-site renewables plant, which generates 100% of We hae meat’s hot water requirements and 80% of its electricity demands.
Jessica van Tromp, Local Sourcing Manager at Scotmid and former SRFDA judge, said: “At Scotmid, we look to consistently introduce new products into stores and to champion local Scottish producers who are developing, growing and producing excellent quality food and drink right on our doorstep. We hae meat is another great example of a Scottish business doing just that and we look forward to working with them on a long-term basis.”
