Graham’s The Family Dairy has signed a partnership deal with food supplier Brakes Scotland, which will see Graham’s supply more than 6,000 Brakes customers across Scotland.

 

Graham’s will provide milk, butter, cream, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, quark and crème fraiche to Brakes.

 

The deal will take place from April 4 with Graham’s products replacing those sourced from England.

 

Richard Lochhead, cabinet secretary for rural affairs, food and environment, said it was great to see Brakes switch to Scottish dairy in response to customer demand.

 

"I urge other businesses to follow suit, as we must all rally behind our hard-pressed producers and source locally when and where we can," he said.

 

The deal marks Graham’s second major agreement in two months. It follows the announcement Graham’s would supply all milk to Scottish Starbucks stores from January.

 

Robert Graham, managing director of Graham’s, said: "Though Brakes is one of the biggest food and drink suppliers in Europe, they see the value in investing in local businesses who retain a focus on high quality produce with strong local provenance."

 

He added this factor was key to Graham’s agreement to supply Brakes.

 

In a separate announcement, Nampak Plastics announced investment to expand its facilities in Stirling would create 20 jobs in the area.

 

Nampak cited ’significant business opportunities’, including work with Graham’s, as a key reason for the investment.
