We have teamed up with Mackie’s at Taypack to publish our first book of recipes to help raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy UK. With a collection of 31 fun and tasty recipes - both sweet & savoury that feature ice cream, chocolate, crisps & popcorn - the hardback book - titled 'Cooking with Mackie's' - will be available first at BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham (14th - 17th June) and the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh (21st - 24th June) and our Ice Cream Parlour in Aberdeen from 25th June. (We will keep you updated when the books become available to buy online).
We were delighted to win the Rural Employer of the Year Award at the 2018 Scottish Rural Awards - "the winning business in this category reflects its rural values by fostering a true sense of belonging and community in the workplace".
The use of plastic has been in the news a lot lately - we are committed to protecting our environment and one of our five brand promises we follow as a business is to be environmentally friendly. Our 1, 2 and 5 litre tubs are manufactured using #5 PP (polypropylene) plastic - this plastic is recyclable, however not with all kerbside collections (76% of local authorities now collect plastic tubs). Visit recyclenow.com to check if you can recycle our plastic tubs in your local area.
