International Track 200

Claiming to be the biggest meat exporter in Scotland, JW Galloway slaughters and processes beef and lamb using the Scotbeef and Scotlamb brands. The family-owned company, based in Stirling, sells Angus beef and lamb to Sainsbury’s and M&S and reckons it is the latter’s biggest meat supplier. Supermarket chains in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Italy are also keen buyers, and its tripe products go to Poland and Hong Kong. The firm’s acquisition of the Vivers lamb business in 2008 and a new tripe plant have boosted international sales, which have grown by 74% a year, from £13.8m in 2008 to £41.7m in 2010.
