The Scottish family behind Strathmore Foods has unveiled a premium new range of ready meals, produced with venison reared at their own family farm in Perthshire.
Findowie Farmhouse is the latest brand to team up with the ready meal specialists, using sustainably farmed Scottish venison as the star ingredient of a new four-pack range – a first for the UK grocery market.
The new brand is named after Meikle Findowie, the picturesque SAI accredited farm near Dunkeld from which the venison will be sourced. The farm is owned by Strathmore Foods’ founders, the Nisbet family, and is home to over 200 Scottish deer and stags.
Julie Nisbet, Managing Director of Strathmore Foods, and daughter of founder Colin Nisbet comments: “Our family are long standing advocates and fans of Scottish venison, which is one of the tastiest, healthiest and most sustainable meats available in Scotland today."
"At our Meikle Findowie farm we have a wonderful source of superb quality venison available, so it makes us very proud to see this meat turned into four delicious new meals for shoppers. It’s also very exciting to be pioneering a completely new and innovative ready meal range in the UK, at a time when research shows that there is a growing appetite amongst consumers to try venison as more of a staple in their diet.”
