Scot Serve’s entry for Project Scotland really stood out and was a great example of how the company worked with FrieslandCampina UK to convince it that there was a case for specific support for the Scottish wholesale sector.

The campaign, called ‘The Goodness of Milk’ for Yazoo, led to an increase in both distribution and rate of sale for the brand. What is also impressive is the way Graeme Clark and his team worked in partnership with FrieslandCampina UK – as a result of the project, which involved direct communication, van sales and promotions, sales of Yazoo 1-litre in key wholesalers in Scotland have increased by 42%.

We started working with Scot Serve 10 years ago and the relationship has gone from strength to strength. One of the reasons it works so well for us is Scot Serve’s flexibility – they’ve become a key resource in a regional location and are very much people-focused operation. We have also entrusted the team with our back office function so they handle all our admin, management reports and payroll – all helping to make our business more cost-effective.

At Quorn Foods we wanted to develop and scale our business in the Wholesale and Convenience channel. We chose Scotserve as our strategic partner due to their experience and proven track-record in growing brands in this sector. From the outset, their professional, flexible and entrepreneurial approach has enabled us to grow distribution, reach and brand presence.

This flexibility enabled us to amend & update the plan as we progressed. This approach has been fundamental in ensuring we could react quickly to customer feedback and evolving trends, in an incredibly competitive trading environment. Scotserve listened to our business requirements and developed a tailor-made package and scalable strategy, to enable us drive a core range of healthy, Meat-Free products across the Scottish Convenience sector.

We have seen unprecedented success within the channel, with significant distribution & sales increases year-on-year, culminating in a win at the 2018 Scottish Wholesale Association Achievers Awards in the “Project Scotland” category.

This was in recognition of our launch into Independent Convenience.

I would highly recommend Scotserve to any brand-owner looking to increase resource or visibility within the UK market.

@Senior Grocery Buyer, JW Filshill

It’s a real pleasure dealing with Scot Serve because when they say they deliver, you can get on with your business in the knowledge that they will do just that. I find the company’s approach refreshing because Graeme Clark’s ideas are always very simple yet effective. With the Yazoo campaign, for example, the uplift in our sales was phenomenal. Scot Serve are successful because they understand Scottish marketplace and are out there getting to know wholesalers like JW Filshill. The relationships they have makes doing business easier and highlights the value in brands providing tailored support for Scotland which is a huge step in the right direction.
