Scottish rugby players eat lean ahead of world tournament
The Scotland rugby team enjoyed tucking into some Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI and Specially Selected Pork in Inverness recently after working up an appetite following a national team building event.
As official healthy eating partner to Scottish Rugby, Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) arranged for a selection of locally sourced Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork to be served to the team as they gathered in Inverness ahead of their upcoming tournament in Japan this September.
Duncan Fraser from the award-winning butchers Duncan Fraser and Sons in Inverness provided a selection of delicious Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork for the players to enjoy after their team building event. Local farmer John Scott then met with players to discuss the importance of incorporating quality assured red meat as an excellent source of protein in a healthy balanced diet.
Quality Meat Scotland’s Director of Marketing and Communications, Carol McLaren, said: “As the official healthy eating partner of Scottish Rugby, we were delighted to provide the Scotland squad with the highest quality Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork after an action-packed team building event.
“Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork are high-quality, delicious products that butchers across the country are proud to supply.

John Scott of Fearn Farm, Tain said: “At Fearn Farm we pride ourselves on our commitment to animal welfare standards while delivering the highest standard of produce possible.
“I was absolutely delighted to chat to the guys about how we produce top quality Scotch Beef and Scotch Lamb and I’m looking forward to supporting Scotland when they play in Japan this September.”
