Scotty Brand Whips Up A Berry Special Tasty Tribute For The Jubilee!

Scotty celebrated the start of the strawberry season and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by teaming up with a local chef and fruit grower to create a very special tasty tribute.

With our first-of-the-season strawberries hitting the shelves of Asda stores across the UK from next week (Monday 6 June), Scotty Brand teamed up with Perthshire chef and restaurateur Tim Dover to make 400 mouth-watering strawberry tarts which were assembled into a giant 70 in honour of the 70-year anniversary of the Queen’s reign.

The giant 70 was created in a field at Bruce Farms near Meigle in Perthshire, a family run farm which provides all the sweet and juicy strawberries and raspberries for Scotty Brand. The individual pastries were then donated to three care homes in Meigle, Coupar Angus and Blairgowrie as a contribution to the Jubilee celebrations being held for residents and staff. 

Scottish berries come into their prime for the summer and for seasonal events such as Wimbledon.  An on-site packing hall means the fruit is picked, packed and despatched rapidly, so the strawberries reach stores within 24 hours. Scotty Brand strawberries come in 300g punnets and will be available in selected Asda stores throughout the UK from Monday 6 June. Scotty Brand raspberries and cherries will follow in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled!

500 strawberry tarts using fresh strawberries produced by Scotty Brand in Perthshire are displayed to mark the 70 years of the Queen’s service and the start of strawberry season. The individual portion tarts were be made from cold set custard and topped with the Scotty Brand strawberries grown by Bruce Farms. Here is our colleague, Richard with the strawberry display.
