Firm scores store spot


AYRSHIRE firm We Hae Meat’s chippy-style battered pork sausage and battered black puddings will now be on sale in Scotmid’s 125 stores across Scotland.

The sought-after Scottish delicacies, produced by the family-run business, are already available from Scotmid’s stores in Cumnock, New Cumnock and Girvan.

The listing’s long-term success follows We Hae Meat’s recent accolade of being named a Scotmid Scottish Favourites winner

– a competitio­n run in partnershi­p with Scotland Food and Drink launched during Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight in 2022.

After a triumphant threeweek promotiona­l listing back in February, which proved a hit with customers, the products are back by popular demand on a permanent basis.

Jessica van Tromp, local sourcing manager at Scotmid, said: “Our customers love these products. We Hae Meat’s commitment to excellence has paid off and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this exciting Scottish business.”

Founded in 2007, We Hae Meat is run by Carlyn Paton and her husband Alex, on the family farm in Ayrshire’s Girvan Valley.

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. Carlyn said: “Knowing our products are available in more than 100 Scotmid stores is a huge achievemen­t for us.

“We are so proud that our family-run, sustainabl­efocused business can provide tasty products to more customers than we’ve ever reached before across the country.”

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 plays a pivotal role in reducing its carbon footprint.

We Hae Meat recommends that its chippy-style products are eaten with oven chips and peas – but the question stands on if they should be mushy or not...
