Restaurant employees recently took part in a ‘Steak School’ on an Airdrie farm, hosted by Dawn Meats.

The event was organised for the Miller & Carter restaurant team ahead of the launch of its second restaurant in Scotland, and its 40th in the UK.

Miller & Carter employees in attendance, 54 in total, had the opportunity to walk the supply chain and meet with the Brown family who run Gaindykehead Farm, in Airdrie. The Browns are a supplier of prime Scotch beef to Dawn Meats in Scotland, from where the Caledonia Crown Scotch beef brand originates.

Catering butcher Jim Brand, from wholesale butcher’s Fairfax Meadow, was at hand to give an introduction into the restaurant’s staff members. “It was a great opportunity for me to engage with the Brown family and share their passion in producing great-quality Scotch Beef with the Miller & Carter team and Dawn Meats,” he said.

Paul Ronan of Dawn Meats also gave a behind-the-scenes insight into the farm-to-fork process. Following this, there was a question-and-answer session with Jim Brown of the Brown family and Dawn Meats’ operation director Isla Roebuck.

“We were delighted to be able to facilitate this visit with the Brown family and engage with the staff at Miller & Carter,” commented Roebuck.

“To have an understanding of the great effort which goes into producing high-quality beef like Caledonia Crown and maintaining the highest animal welfare and environmental standards on-farm is an experience and knowledge which the staff will be able to reference with customers from next weekend. We wish them every success.”
