Scotty Brand Strawberries across the UK in ASDA
The Scottish food producer, Scotty Brand have secured a UK contract with ASDA. This means that over 200 tonnes of delicious berries grown in Perthshire will be available to buy throughout 200 UK stores with the national supermarket chain.
Michael Jarvis, head of marketing at Scotty Brand, said:
“Scottish berries are a big hit both north and south of the border, so this year we are delighted that our Scotty Brand strawberries will be listed throughout the UK in ASDA stores.”
Scotty Brand strawberries are grown and packed by Bruce Farms, based in Perthshire, this is their 25th year of growing the crop.
Geoff Bruce, the director of Bruce Farms, said:
“The climate this year has been perfect for growing berries. Strawberries take about 75 days to ripen in Scotland compared to about 60 days in England and about 45 days in Spain. This is all down to the Scottish weather and climate. The longer the ripening – the better the flavour.
We, of course, had to go and get a punnet, or two and made a flan to celebrate the start of summer.
