Farmers to Take to Clydebank to Promote Fine Scottish Produce

Farmers from Forth and Clyde region will be taking to their local Aldi store in Clydebank this weekend to encourage shoppers to support the industry and buy Scottish produce available on their doorsteps.

The promotional event will see NFU Scotland members speaking to customers on Saturday 24 September from 12pm to 3pm.

Tom French, NFU Scotland’s Regional Chairman for Forth and Clyde, and local farmer, commented: “There has been a lot happening during September to promote the high quality Scottish produce available to consumers.

“This event is part of a wider roadshow NFU Scotland has organised at supermarkets and farmers’ markets across the country in recent months. We will be encouraging shoppers to buy Scottish, support their farmers and our industry. Our produce is some of the best in the world and is available right on their doorsteps.

“Customers these days want quality – and that is what Scottish farmers produce and supply. In these difficult and uncertain times within the agricultural sector, that support means a lot.”
