Nagel Langdons delivers haggis in a hurry

Nagel Langdons, the UK subsidiary of the Nagel-Group have signed an agreement with Macsween of Edinburgh which will see them expand their current storage and distribution service to include contract freezing, tempering and case picking for the Edinburgh based business.

The family owned business founded by current owners and directors James and Jo Macsween’s grandfather more than 60 years ago, manufactures Scotland’s national dish from their purpose built production kitchen in Loanhead near Edinburgh.

James and Jo have been instrumental in driving growth in the category and attracting a new generation of consumers. What was once an occasional meal most commonly eaten to celebrate the birth of Robert Burns on the 25th January each year is now distributed throughout the UK all year round via Nagel Langdons and into Europe via the Nagel-Group network.

Asked why they had chosen to re-locate their in-house picking and despatch function to Nagel Langdons and what benefits this would bring to their business James Macsween commented:

“As our brand has grown we were keen to work with a trusted and experienced partner to support our operation. We required an expert in logistics to support our business so that we could focus on our area of expertise – making the best haggis in the world.”
