Saltire Organic Meat Company (SOMCo) is a collaborative venture between two well established Scottish SMEs: Peelham Organic and Hugh Grierson Organic. SOMCo was formed in 2013 to make it easier for public sector or other large scale caterers, to source organic Scottish beef.
Purchasing organic, Scottish meat brings with it a number of benefits that directly link to the sustainable procurement aims of the Scottish Government. There are clear economic, social and environmental benefits from using local, small scale, high welfare and low impact farms to provide a high quality, fully traceable product. Saltire Organic Meat Company sources meat from just two family owned farms with the owners involved in every step of the process.
We have four key principles that govern our collaboration and provide a badge of confidence for our customers: Reliability, Flexibility, Quality and Trust
