Top Track 250

As a supplier to the hospitality industry, this Dumfries and Galloway-based firm has been disrupted by the pandemic. Although it continued manufacturing throughout the crisis, some staff were furloughed and it is considering making 8% of its workforce redundant, after a number of customers folded. Browns Food Group was founded as a butcher 115 years ago and is led by Wayne Godfrey, 48. Its brands include Hall’s, Tarbert Fine Foods, Scottish Gourmet and Rannoch Smokery.
