Meat industry mourns death
Ian Galloway, chairman of Bridge of Allan-based Scotbeef, has died after a short illness, at the age of 75.
He transformed the family-owned business from a Glasgow-based retail butcher’s, with branches throughout the city, into the UK’s biggest single plant meat processor, with a strong international profile. Major customers have included Marks & Spencer and McDonald’s.
In 2001 he was awarded a CBE for services to the Scottish meat industry.
Ian Galloway was also Royal Smithfield Club vice-president. In 2007 he was awarded The Club’s Bicentenary Trophy Award in recognition of his significant contribution to the overall benefit of the British meat livestock industry. He was elected a vice-president of the Club in 2009 and had given great support to The Club including the establishment of the Beef Ribs Competitions.
The Club said he had left a great business and personal legacy and would be sorely missed by all.
