John Scott

John Scott has been at the heart of the growth and development of the business since originally deciding to start supplying meat directly to a group of Greenock butchers in the late 1960s.  

Although John retired from the meat business in 2000, he still enjoys buying cattle at Ayr Auction Mart, displaying a stock selection skill which remains as sharp as ever.

A founder member of the Guild of Scotch Quality Meat Suppliers* and a former president of the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers, he also has a detailed understanding of the meat industry, keeping a close watch on the latest twists and turns of Scottish, UK and European developments as they affect the production and profitability of livestock farming and meat wholesaling. 

Ultimately, however, John likes nothing more than to be out on the farm, checking how good the latest batch of animals are.     

* The Guild of Scotch Quality Meat Suppliers is the body from which today’s Quality Meat Scotland emerged.
