Morrisons to process 500,000 Scottish lambs in 2018

The retailer is to process half a million Scottish lambs this year.
The retailer is to process half a million Scottish lambs this year.

Retail giant Morrisons is set to process half a million Scottish lambs this year through its plant in Turriff.

The supermarket chain main the pledge during a meeting with Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) at its Edinburgh Gyle store.

The company’s local solutions category manager, Angus Bell, said all fresh lamb in Morrisons stores in Scotland, with the exception of leg joints, was labelled as Scotch. During busy periods, such as Easter, all leg joints are labelled as British to allow the retailer flexibility to source from across the UK when demand is high.

He said Morrisons had processed 13% more Scotch Lamb this season, compared with last year, and it is set to process 500,000 lambs in Scotland throughout 2018 at its site in Turriff.

“As retailers we understand what Scotch Lamb, with its PGI status, stands for in terms of quality assurance and the care which goes into producing a world-class product for our customers to enjoy,” said Mr Bell.

QMS chief executive, Alan Clarke, said: “It was great to see at first hand the extent of the commitment Morrisons have for Scotch Lamb.

“It was also hugely encouraging to hear of their future plans to increase their Scotch Lamb throughput,”
