Ayrshire business in food supply boost

We Hae Meat travelled to Asda House in Leeds to help celebrate the launch of a new six-month initiative that aims to boost local food suppling businesses across Scotland.

Run in partnership with Scotland Food & Drink and supported by the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and the Environment, Richard Lochhead, Asda’s Scottish Supplier Development Academy (SDA) is a bespoke, six-month training and development programme for the Scottish food and drink sector.

We Hae Meat - Ayrshire-based family butcher - will participate in five learning modules.

These will be followed by four additional follow-ups which will cover topics including account management, new product development (NPD) and the lifecycle of home-grown Scottish products, from Asda depot receipt to customers’ trolleys and finally their dinner plates.

The launch of the SDA follows the highly successful Year of Food and Drink Scotland 2015.
