As a long standing Scottish company, SPAR Scotland is delighted to be working with Scottish Food & Drink to support this year’s Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight.

The annual event, which runs from 1st until 16th September 2018 is a celebration of all things Scottish – food, drink, young people and for SPAR, Scots words too!

Paula Middleton, Marketing Manager for SPAR Scotland comments; “We decided to have a bit of fun with the event this year so we’re displaying a range of old Scots words around all SPAR stores in Scotland.

We’ve had great fun researching some of the words and it’s created a lot of debate and laughter in the office.  Words like Bahookie, Baffies and Steek are just some that you’ll see in our stores and on our social media channels – Facebook – SparScotlandOfficial and Twitter - @SparScotland

In addition to this we’ve got some fantastic Scottish products on special offer over the 2 week event. These include speciality Gins, malt Whiskies and much more.”

SPAR Scotland works with over 150 local suppliers the length and breadth of the country and stocks local, Scottish produce on a daily basis.

Lucy Husband, Scottish Food & Drink’s UK Market Development Director, said: “Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate what we have here in Scotland and we are delighted SPAR Scotland are getting behind the campaign. It is fantastic to see the number of local food and drink products stocked in their stores and, by highlighting those products during the two weeks, they will be helping customers to discover, buy and enjoy more Scottish produce while ultimately helping the whole sector to thrive.”

Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight runs from 1st to 16th September 2018.
