Media Release: Simon Howie’s £10 ‘goodie bag’ lunch proves runaway success


HE had a hunch that they would prove popular – but Scottish butcher, Simon Howie, was amazed at the response from customers to last week’s launch of his £10 ‘goodie bag’ available exclusively from his shops in Auchterarder and Perth.

And in response to a flood of requests from customers hungry for more – fresh new goodie bags will be available this weekend.

The contents of this week’s goodie bags – offering a total saving of 25 per cent – are: mini chicken pies; pork and herb spiral sausages; steak burgers; chicken and smoked bacon olives; original haggis; boneless spare ribs; chicken kebabs and steak and onion spiral sausages.

Simon Howie said: “We’d hoped that our customers would enjoy this new product offering – but were delighted that have proved so immediately popular! Offering incredible value, we’re confident that customer demand for our goodie bags will continue to grow.”

Simon Howie Foods started out with a small village butcher’s in 1986. In addition to its own butcher shops in Auchterarder and Perth, the business services some of the most prestigious hotels and restaurants in Scotland, as well as supplying all of the UK’s leading supermarkets, including Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco and ASDA.

In addition to winning the title of UK Butcher’s Shop of the Year in 2006, and the Scottish title in 2009, Simon Howie was named Entrepreneur of the Year in 2008 by the Entrepreneurial Exchange.
