Stevenson Brings Sainsbury's Buyer to Portsoy

MSP Stewart Stevenson brought a buyer from a leading supermarket to Banffshire on Monday in an effort to promote local produce.

James Laws, Commercial Manager and Scottish Buyer for J Sainsbury plc accepted an invitation from Mr Stevenson to come North to visit local companies and first port of call was Gourmet's Choice Ltd in Portsoy.

Mr Stevenson has now met personally with representatives from each of the large supermarket chains in his efforts to promote more sourcing of locally produced food and drink.

Speaking after the visit, Mr Stevenson said:

"I was delighted to be able to facilitate a visit to Banffshire by Sainsbury's. This area has a lot to offer in terms of quality food and drink and I think the Sainsbury's buyer was very impressed with what he saw and indeed tasted.

"Gourmet's Choice Ltd is a thriving local company which is exporting a quality product across the globe from its operation in Portsoy. They deserve continued success and I wish them all the best in their future plans."
