Ashers of Nairn in bakery tie-up with Co-op Scotmid

Scottish Co-operative Scotmid has just opened its 100th in-store bakery, this time in partnership with Ashers Bakery of Nairn, with the opening of a new in-store bakery facility at its Scotmid Balloan store in Inverness. Read more here.

According to Alister Asher, joint managing director of Ashers: "Ashers is delighted to be working in partnership with Scotmid as they expand their bakery sector. Customers appreciate local fresh bakery suppliers in a convenient location. We’re proud to be Scotmid’s 100th in-store bakery."

Scotmid's project began in April 2012 and now has partnerships with seven Scottish craft bakers (Ashers Bakery of Nairn; Aulds of Greenock; The Breadwinner Bakery of Edinburgh; Goodfellow & Steven of Dundee; J G Ross of Inverurie; Stephens Bakery of Dunfermline; and Stuart’s of Buckhaven) and in England with Bryson’s of Keswick, for its Lakes and Dales Co-operative stores in Cumbria.

Although I rarely eat bread products myself any longer (for dietary reasons), I was formerly a regular customer of Ashers here in Nairn (now only when I have guests staying with me) and can thoroughly recommend their products, from various breads to the most 'sinful' of treats and I have used their custom cake-making service on several occasions for special celebrations.
