Speaking of the business’ commitment, Managing Director Will Macpherson has said; ‘when creating the business, one of our main focuses was supporting our surrounding community as much as possible. From hiring local team members, to stocking regional producers we want to celebrate the very best of Angus. 

We want to acknowledge the effort and hard work that our team put in daily, and this is just one way we show our appreciation.’

Gail Irvine, Living Wage Scotland Manager has said of the accreditation: ‘We are delighted to see Angus Grill and Larder becoming a trailblazer Living Wage employer in the Angus region. Too many workers in Scotland are paid less than the real Living Wage and, at a time of rising costs, are struggling to stay afloat. The real Living Wage can offer protection from those rising costs, and employers who pay the real Living Wage see the benefits in improved recruitment and a more motivated and engaged workforce.  

We hope to see many more employers in Angus follow Angus Grill and Larder’s lead by becoming Living Wage accredited.’
