www.scobiesdirect.com is an ideal platform for us to promote the Year of the Haggis. By virtue of the fact that the web has no boundaries, the message will spread and already we have several haggis customers south of the border. And we expect to find many more.
The message is clear – we are proud to sponsor the Year of the Haggis 2014 and we will be ready to supply all SFMTA members with the products and technical expertise to get haggis sales roaring throughout the year.
Our award winning complete haggis mix , blended in our BRC approved factory in East Kilbride is a favourite product of Scottish haggis makers.
We also sell a range of natural and artificial casings specially selected to house the finished haggis product.
Our company mission statement is “Adding Value to Food”, so for 2014 we plan to make one of our missions “Adding Value to Haggis”.
We have the commitment of our Technical Resource Centre to develop an exciting, extended range of haggis mixes.
The end result should allow the butchers across Scotland to present variants of haggis related dishes with extra value and a price point and margin which drive sales and profit into our customer base.
We have a solid haggis mix expertise to build upon – our traditional complete mix features regularly in the winners’ circle of haggis competitions.
Access to our products is the best in the business via our leading edge e-commerce portal for butchers , www.scobiesdirect.com.
