Scotty Brand, provider of premium seasonal Scottish produce, has extended its portfolio with the introduction of a range of three delicious Scotty Brand Fresh Soups.
With traditional appeal, the new Fresh Soups include Scotch Broth, Potato & Leek and Lentil, all produced by the award-winning Scottish Sword family. These classic Scottish soups use fresh vegetables and are packed full of wholesome flavour and goodness.
• Scotch Broth: A classic Scottish soup of vegetables and barley, prepared with lamb stock as the traditional recipe.
• Potato & Leek soup: A traditional creamy soup with chunky potatoes & tender leeks.
• Lentil: A hearty Scottish soup with red and green lentils and carrots, cooked in a tasty ham.
The Sword Company was founded in 1894 as a bakery in Airdrie and is still owned and managed by the family – David and Douglas Sword – from Blairlinn, Lanarkshire. The family’s philosophy is simple and based on values shared by Scotty Brand: To deliver good quality products, using natural Scottish ingredients wherever possible.
Commenting on the new soup launch, Michael Jarvis, marketing manager for Scotty Brand, said: “Our new Scotty Brand Fresh Soups are guaranteed to appeal to those looking for a healthy, fresh soup that can be simply heated up and enjoyed. Made using fresh vegetables picked at their prime, the hard work has been taken care of with none of the goodness taken out, so we’re confident that these Fresh Soups will prove popular for busy Mums looking for a tasty and convenient lunch option.”
The new range of Scotty Brand Fresh Soups is available in 550g tubs with a RRP of £1.70 in Asda Scotland. Each variety is clearly differentiated from the other by use of different coloured tartan flashes. This tartan element highlights Scotty Brand’s Scottish provenance and the colour of each one is drawn from the principal ingredient.
Scotty Brand was first launched in 1948 by Albert Bartlett, a shipyard worker who wanted to support his family and so began boiling up beetroot in an old tin bath, selling it under Scotty Brand.
Albert’s name and his values of hard work and honest endeavor live on in the family company today, as it continues to bring you the very best tasting, highest quality products from Scotland.
Scotty Brand recently won the ‘Success Through Working In Partnerships’ award at the Scotland Food and Drink Awards. This award was made in recognition for the way Scotty Brand has brought together producers and processors to develop a great tasting range, delivering authentic Scottish provenance.
