|Multi-award winning Irish Black Butter has strengthened its market positions in Scotland and England as a result of new retail deals there.|
The artisan producer of a savoury sauce, listed by the UK Guild of Fine Food in last year’s Great Taste Awards as one of the top products, has lined up from its participation at the recent Scotland Speciality Food Show in Glasgow.
Alastair Bell, founder and managing director of Irish Black Butter, the small artisan company he established in 2017, describes the deals as “encouraging green shoots of activity.”
The new deals include retailers at Loch Lomond and the Isle of Skye
“In addition. I am also seeing benefits from being listed with Craic Foods on the Artisan Food Club in the shape of new business in Lancashire,” Mr Bell continues.
“We are now steadily developing a network of delis, independent retailers and cafes using our products which include peanut butter spread, a prize winner in the Scotland Speciality Show.
“The new business is the outcome of hard work in Britain and our commitment to taking part on food shows across the country with Invest NI and Food NI,” he adds.
It will also be presenting its products at the UK Guild of Fine Food’s Fine Food North food show in Harrogate next month.
