Dairy and lamb promotional events proves popular

The excellent food produced by Scottish farmers was showcased to the public on Buchanan Street, Glasgow on Sunday, 23 August.

Sheep farmers from Ayrshire joined with their dairy colleagues to promote Scottish produce, in particular Scotch Lamb and dairy produce.

As well as tying in with the Year of Scotland Food and Drink, the day promoted the Red Tractor Assurance Scheme and provided the public with information about buying local and how they can take steps to support the country’s farmers.

This promotional event was run in conjunction with Quality Meat Scotland’s Love Scotch Lamb campaign which is taking place throughout August and September, which NFU Scotland supports. It is part of a number of different events happening in the coming weeks to promote Scottish produce.

NFU Scotland’s Regional Manager Christine Cuthbertson commented: “The sun was shining on shoppers and visitors yesterday as we explained that Scotch Lamb is a hugely versatile ingredient and everyone loved the quick and easy recipe booklets we handed out with Scotch Lamb recipes which can be made in under 30 minutes, including spicy lamb meatballs with pasta.

“I am sure many of the people we spoke to would be whipping up some of these tasty and nutritious meals for their supper this week.”
For those attending the Scottish Air Show at Low Green, Ayr on 5 September, there will be an opportunity to try Scotch lamb, buy Scotch beef burgers and find out more information about the produce.
