Scottish lamb season needs retailer support

The Scottish lamb season is now in full swing, backed by the industry’s exciting new Scotch lamb promotional campaign entitled “Wham, Bam, Thank You Lamb”.

As part of its regular Shelfwatch examination of supermarket shelves, NFU Scotland found 100 percent Scottish or British lamb in Morrisons, Marks & Spencer and Sainsburys stores.

However, the volume of imported lamb on the Tesco and Asda stores visited came as a major disappointment.

The Union is now calling on those retailers to back the campaign.
