Why Buy Scotch Meat?

Make it Scotch Meat

Scotch Meat is not simply a brand. It’s a mark of quality to ensure the meat you buy is traceable, local and quality assured. 

What does that mean for you? It means that when you buy meat labelled with Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb or Specially Selected Pork, you can be sure that the animals have been born, reared and processed in Scotland and spent their entire life on QMS Scotch Assured holdings. This can give reassurance of provenance, highest standards of production, and animal welfare and wellbeing, to deliver a quality eating experience. In short, you can have confidence that the meat you buy is the highest quality produce possible!

Why eat Scotch Meat?

The benefits of eating SCOTCH meat

No matter the type you choose to buy, there are key benefits to looking for our labels when buying your meat: 

  • All Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork must have been born, reared and processed in Scotland and spent their entire life on QMS Scotch Assured holdings.
  • A range of assurance schemes covers the full supply chain, from Cattle and Sheep and Feeds, through to Haulage, Auction Market and Processor. This means you can be sure Scotch Meat has the highest standards of production, and animal welfare and control.
  • All Scotch Meat must be locally sourced from QMS assured farms and producers, held to the highest sustainability standards. This, along with a reduction in carbon footprint due to shorter haulage, results in lower environmental impacts of Scotch Meat.
  • Red Meat has a range of nutritional benefits, which includes high levels of protein, low levels of sodium, and range of vitamins such as iron, zinc, Vitamin B12 and potassium.

It’s nice to know where your food comes from. When you buy from a Scotch Butchers Club member, you can be reassured that their meat comes from a quality assured farm, like mine, ensuring care for the land, the animal and the environment.
