We hae meat, which was founded in 2007, has a plate-to-fork approach, using cattle reared on its own farm in Girvan, Ayrshire for its products. 

Craig Chalmers, We hae meat’s Commercial Manager, said: ”This deal marks a milestone moment for We hae meat, as we work with Iceland to introduce our butcher quality products to their customers, at affordable supermarket prices. It underscores our commitment to maintaining the quality and value that we are known for.” 

Claire McGoran, Senior Buyer at Iceland Foods, said: “We are excited to welcome We hae meat to our shelves, offering our customers a premium selection of Scottish meats that’s aligned with our commitment to quality and taste.
