Tom Arthur MSP, the Minister for Public Finance, Planning and Community Wealth visited the leading SPAR wholesaler CJ Lang & Son Ltd in Scotland on Thursday 26 August 2021.

On a tour of the depot and offices at the Dundee distribution centre to learn about CJ Lang and SPAR Scotland, the Minister was keen to meet CEO Colin McLean and other senior members of the Exec team as well as colleagues on site in the depot.

The visit formed part of a coordinated programme of in-person engagements encompassing a range of policy interests within the Minister’s portfolio.

As the country’s largest independent retailing and distribution company, Mr Arthur was keen to learn about CJ Lang’s family business and gain insight into its processes and challenges throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Colin McLean said: “We were thrilled to give Mr Arthur a brief history of the company, followed by a full tour of our facility at Dundee including all chambers within the warehouse and logistics department. We appreciate the time and effort he and his team took out of their schedule to learn about how we kept SPAR stores filled with essential items for local communities around Scotland during the pandemic.”

“It’s been a challenging 18 months but thanks to a fantastic team effort we’ve managed to ensure our stock has continued to roll out of our depot to over 300 stores the length and breadth of Scotland.”

Community Wealth Minister Tom Arthur said:“We are grateful for the essential role food retailers and wholesalers such as CJ Lang & Son have played during this pandemic amid difficult and unprecedented circumstances.

“We know the situation is fragile and would encourage all businesses and shoppers to continue to follow public health guidance on reducing the risk of COVID-19 and supporting staff and customers.”
