Steak pies made in Falkirk will feature on a fleet of lorries designed to champion local produce.

Malcolm Allan’s popular fare can be spotted on the vehicles being used by Tesco to deliver produce to its Scottish stores.

Butcher firm director Gordon Allan was at the Scottish Parliament last week when the fleet was unveiled by Richard Lochhead, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment.

The company first began supplying its Braveheart steak pies to Tesco after meeting its local sourcing team at the Royal Highland Show eight years ago. The two have worked together since then and now the stock range has increased to 14 products in 60 stores across Scotland.

Mr Allan said: “Working with Tesco has had a huge impact on our business, in fact over the last eight years we’ve increased our staff by 20 as a direct result. To grow your business, you have to constantly become more efficient so we’ve worked closely with the Tesco local sourcing team for Scotland to improve our efficiency and increase productivity.”

The 14-strong fleet features a map of Scotland made up of a variety of products, produced or grown across the country and carrying the sign ‘We love shopping locally so you can get the best local products, in store or online’.
