White Pudding Order Breaks Company Record



Buckie-based fine meats manufacturer, Speyside Specialities, today (Wednesday, December 10th, 2014) reports record-breaking orders of its oatmeal-based white puddings in the lead up to Christmas.

Today and Friday (12th December) will see the firm produce and deliver 5 tonnes of white pudding to British supermarkets consecutively - a total of 100,000 white puddings or 10 tonnes across two days. These orders, which are just in time to hit our Christmas dinner plates, are the largest ever white pudding orders for the company in one day. Speyside Specialities also delivered 4 tonnes on Monday and expects to deliver similar, if not larger orders within the next two weeks. 

Speyside Specialities outstrips its rivals to clinch a 57.7% majority of the UK multiples market share, according to leading global information and measurement company Nielsen. Oatmeal-based white puddings are not known to be sold anywhere else in the world, with other close rivals in the stats adding pork to their recipes.

David Lawson, Managing Director of Speyside Specialities comments, “Our oatmeal-based white pudding is a fantastic seller and is especially popular at Christmas as a lovely accompaniment to the traditional turkey dinner. We always prepare ourselves for a big push in production in the run up to Christmas, but to have produced and shipped this quantity in just two days is just phenomenal.

“We have worked hard to refine our savoury oatmeal pudding with only the very best Scottish oats, beef dripping and a secret blend of seasoning. Our high sales figures go to show that we have got a fantastic recipe, which continues to fly the flag for traditional Scottish produce at Christmas.”

White pudding or ‘mealy’ pudding is a traditional Scottish accompaniment to a roast dinner, but is also commonly used as a stuffing, is most popular with mince and ‘tatties’, and is known to be an accompaniment to eggs and bacon.
