Mey Selections company reports £4.6m turnover
North Highland Products, the operating company for the Mey Selections brand, has reported a turnover of £4.6m in its first full year of operation.
Speaking at the company's annual general meeting at the Park Hotel in Thurso, chairman Denny Miller, said: "In our first full year we have achieved a significant rise in turnover. 2006 was a very good year in that we have been able to successfully develop our product range, our supply chain and, return good premiums to our members.
"We have secured about £240,000 in premiums above average market prices and I am very pleased we are delivering what we set out to do, returning more money to farmers and food producers in the North Highlands."
Miller said the North Highland Products supply chain was working well, with over 270 farmer members in the scheme: "Cattle and lambs continue to be processed by Dunbia, at a dedicated Mey Selections facility at Dornoch. Cattle and lambs are slaughtered at Kirkwall, Inverurie and Dornoch through commercial arrangements with Orkney Meat and Scotch Premier. This shows the benefits of collaboration in the supply chain."
