Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) - meat voucher scheme
QMS will be running their meat voucher scheme again in session 2012/13. The voucher entitles your school up to £100 worth of red meat products from your local QMS affiliated butcher.
QMS have recently published a revised and updated ‘Chefs guide’, which offers both budding and professional chefs an insight into the whole Scottish production chain from farm gate to dinner plate. This resource is available free to all schools.
If you would like to take advantage of either or both of these generous offers, please contact Jennifer Robertson, Health and Education Coordinator by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on QMS’s services, please go to their website www.qmscotland.co.uk.
