Mackie's deliver a taste of Christmas to Asda

Mackie’s at Taypack has secured a contract with Asda to stock its shelves with Christmas treats in time for the festive season.

The new deal will bring a selection of festive flavoured snacks to nearly 50 Scottish stores.

Customers from across Scotland can now enjoy the new Mine Pie Popcorn and Turkey and Haggis Stuffing crisp ranges, with Asda being the first to distribute the flavours.

This latest deal comes off the back of a £10,000 contract earlier this year which saw Mackie’s first introduce its extensive popcorn lines on Asda shelves, with flavours including Sweet and Salted, Scotch Bonnet Chilli Pepper, Butterscotch and Lightly Sea Salted.

"We’ve seen exceptional interest in Mackie’s popcorn range since launch and Mackie’s crisps have always been a favourite for customers across the country," said Heather Turnbull, buying manager for Scotland.

"Christmas is the time for families to come together and although we have lots of locally sourced Scottish products for the Christmas table on offer this year, both Mackie’s crisps and popcorn are the perfect addition to the festive fun."

James Taylor, commercial director at Mackie’s Crisps, added: "We’ve seen an explosion of popularity within the popcorn market and we couldn’t have thought of a better time to unveil new additions to our family of Mackie’s products at Asda."
