Quality Meat Scotland - Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) is set to unveil a bright, interactive new-look stand at this year’s Royal Highland Show. The new layout and design of the stand, located in its usual ring-side position, is aimed at inspiring visitors to the show with a lively and inspiring “Scotch Kitchen” cookery theatre, tempting samples and an engaging education area. The line-up of top chefs who will be demonstrating in the Scotch Kitchen cookery theatre include Lady Claire Macdonald, the “Queen of Cuisine” and Jak O’Donnell, chef patron at The Sisters restaurants in Glasgow.

Graham’s Family Dairy – Stand OS2 in Scotland’s Larder – Graham’s always have a stunning set up and we imagine this year will be no different! Make sure you visit the team and sample Protein 22, Quark and Gold Smooth. These are all super delicious and cannot be missed. Graham’s have been a dairy institution in Scotland for many years, and it is great to see continued innovation with the regular introduction of new fantastic products.

The Perthshire business is now supplying the best chefs in the country, and you will see their oil being used on television shows like Great British Menu, Live at 5, Sunday Brunch and many more. Make sure you pop over and speak to Mark and Maggie Bush, a lovely couple who have a real passion for what they do. Oh… make sure you taste the Truffle Oil, it’s a little bit special!
