The deal means branded products from Social Bite – which distributes food and drink to homeless people, and runs enterprise cafes throughout Scotland – will go on sale at selected Scotmid stores. The agreement begins at two Scotmid stores – Raeburn Place and Hamilton Place – in Stockridge, Edinburgh.
Jane Bruce, CEO of Social Bite Scotland, said: “Scotmid has been a staunch supporter of Social Bite from the early days, sharing our vision and passion for improving lives. By stocking Social Bite branded sandwiches, wraps and salad boxes, Scotmid is reaffirming its commitment to the quality of our food and the validity of our mission.
“Social Bite started as a single sandwich shop, and we remain passionate about great food.”
Kevin Plant, Scotmid’s head of food retail, said: “It is fantastic to see the next chapter in our ongoing friendship with Social Bite come to life and we’re incredibly proud to become the first stockists of Social Bite’s products.
“As a community retailer, Social Bite’s cause really resonates with our members and customers and matches our core purpose, which is to serve our communities and improve people’s everyday lives.
“So we’re excited about introducing these products and certain they will prove to be popular additions to our in-store range available at our stores in Stockbridge.”
