JW Galloway claims to be the biggest meat exporter in Scotland, slaughtering, processing and selling beef and lamb under the Scotbeef and Scotlamb brands. Founded in 1920 by James W Galloway as a butcher’s shop, the Stirling-based company counts Aldi and Marks & Spencer among its customers and also supplies restaurants and hotels in 20 countries across Europe. Turnover rose 9% to £349.5m last year, driven by demand in the UK. Its chief executive, Robbie Galloway, 52, is the fourth generation of the family to lead the firm.
