A group of international food buyers from Hong Kong, Singapore and Canada headed to a Perthshire farm to learn about the origins Scotch Beef PGI and Scotch Lamb PGI. 

The buyers visited Cromlix Estate near Dunblane, which is owned by the Eden family. The farm is home to a suckler herd of 170 cows and 1,000 Blackface ewes and is managed by Iain Malcolm.

The farm visit was arranged by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and allowed the guests to gain a first-hand appreciation into the care and stockmanship that goes into rearing the livestock, resulting in top-quality produce.

“Many thanks to Iain Malcolm and family for hosting an excellent visit,” said Emily Grant of QMS, who joined the buyers on their visit.

She added that the visitors were impressed with the manner in which the animals were reared: “The buyers have gone home with a very positive impression of Scottish livestock farming and the dedication behind the production of Scotch Beef and Scotch Lamb.”
