Summer vegetable packs the perfect partner for summer dining

Scotty Brand, the umbrella brand for premium fresh seasonal Scottish produce, has unveiled two summer prepared vegetable packs, which will be listed in ASDA stores in Scotland from late June 2013.

The perfect partner for summer dining, the two varieties of 250g summer vegetable packs are:

• Summer Vegetables with Mint Butter – This pack is a refreshing mix of cabbage, broccoli and peas.  As the vegetables cook, the mint butter melts and imparts a subtle flavour to the dish – ideal accompaniment to barbequed pork and Chunky Scotty potato wedges.

• Mixed Vegetables with Seasoned Butter -This is a delicious combination of carrot, broccoli and cauliflower with seasoned butter, which adds a delicate herby flavour to the vegetables – great with steamed fish and boiled new Ayrshire potatoes.

These delicious summer prepared vegetable packs are freshly produced and packed in Scotland by Kettle Produce, which was established by two Fife farming families in 1985.  The Company is based in the small village of Balmalcolm and works with a variety of farmers across Scotland to grow vegetable and salad crops. Its farmers have generations of experience and cultivate some of the best arable land in the country.

The ingredients all grow well in Scotland due to the temperate climate with plenty of natural irrigation and cool temperatures between 10 and 20 degrees.

Michael Jarvis, marketing manager of Scotty Brand, said: “The introduction of summer vegetable packs to our rapidly expanding product portfolio is very exciting. We are committed to delivering the very best Scottish-grown produce that tastes great, is good value and healthy, and these new products are a perfect accompaniment for the brand.  They are ideal for anyone looking to save time – all the cleaning and chopping is done for you and all of the vegetable goodness remains.”

Scotty Brand has just won the ‘Success Through Working In Partnerships’ Award at the Scotland Food and Drink Awards earlier this month. 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.

The 250g Vegetable Pots will be available in ASDA stores throughout Scotland from June 2013. For further information, please contact Michael Jarvis, Marketing Manager Michael.Jarvis@ScottyBrand.com  or 01236 771 742
