Industry bodies supporting the Scottish agricultural and red meat industry have released an open letter addressed to the Scottish public.

The letter, signed by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS), the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers, the Scottish Beef Association, the National Sheep Association Scotland, the Scottish Association of Young Farmers Clubs and the Scottish Craft Butchers, highlighted that all links in the red meat supply chain are doing everything they can to maintain the ongoing availability of fresh, locally sourced Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI and Specially Selected Pork during this time of unprecedented uncertainty.

The letter also thanked all those who work in the Scottish red meat industry and their families for their ongoing and unwavering efforts to keep the supermarket shelves and butcher shops stocked, fuelling Scotland with top-quality red meat.
