Stuart’s is a sixth-generation family bakers and butchers with shops and outlets serving Fife and the surrounding areas.
Initially our products were always supplied through our own shops and cafés. However, as the business develops and purchase habits have changed, our supply chain has developed and changed too.
Today, as well as being available online and via our own shops and cafés, a very high proportion of our products are purchased through convenience stores and other outlets right across the central belt of Scotland and beyond. This has broadened our customer base and made our products accessible to people who may never have visited one of our stores because they weren’t local to them. It has also made great business sense to the suppliers we work with such as Spar, Scotmid, and Nisa to name but three!
The deal is simple, but works well for all parties including customers (who get the opportunity to purchase award winning bakery and butchery products at their local store). Our product ranges include bakery products like savoury and fruit pies, cakes and rolls while the butchery products are a full range of pre-packed meats, barbecue meats and breakfast meat products.
Put simply, when a store agrees to supply Stuart’s Bakery and/or Butchery products we agree terms, which include:
- Interactive display with fresh products delivered daily from a multi award winning craft producer
- Zero waste concerns
- Sale or return
- Fully trained staff to assist with sales growth
- Comprehensive staff training in-store
- Some exclusivity on products (within your coverage area)
- Point of sale
As this is a major development area for us, we have recently appointed Garry Rankin as Head of Sales. If you are interested to hear more about the opportunities that exist then Garry will be happy to arrange a visit to discuss the counter options and discounts that could be available. Just give us a call on 01333 439333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
