French importer rewarded for commitment to Scotch Lamb
Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has rewarded a French importer for its commitment to Scotch Lamb.
The Scottish red meat body reported that Xavier and Laurent Macquet, who run SA Macquet based in northern France, received an award from Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and the Environment Richard Lochhead at Sial.
The meat business, which was founded in 1813, is said to be a “huge supporter” of Scotch Lamb and supplies Scotch Beef to retailers and the foodservice sector in France.
QMS chairman Jim McLaren said: “Macquet are extremely valuable, staunch supporters of the Scotch brand and it is our pleasure to present them with an award as a gesture of our appreciation.
“The company, which works closely with our export development manager based in France, David Chiffoleau, is very actively supporting Scotch Beef and Scotch Lamb in its marketplace.
“It is vital that we continue to build on our existing strong market presence in France and, of course, across Europe to ensure that retailers and consumers are aware of the quality and provenance that the Scotch Beef and Scotch Lamb labels guarantee.
“These schemes underpin our brands and ensure the high standards of production, traceability and welfare that our customers around the globe expect.”
