Win a meal for two at a Scotch Beef Club restaurant
The very best restaurants use the very finest ingredients, and The Scotch Beef Club is unashamedly based on quality, with its exclusive restaurants very proud of the fact that they serve the best beef available, promoting it clearly and unambiguously on their menus.
But you don’t have to be an expert chef to spot great-tasting, great-quality beef. Just look for the Scotch Beef label. It’s your guarantee that the cattle were born and reared on farms in Scotland which have met our stringent quality standards, with the fresh air, pure water and natural environment all adding to the beef’s rich and succulent taste.
The lush pasture that Scotland is famed for is one of the reasons why Scotch Beef tastes as good as it does. Grass-fed animals produce a flavoursome meat due to high levels of natural vitamins and minerals in the land. And of course, generations of excellent farming methods have done their bit to enhance Scotch Beef’s impeccable reputation.
Scotch Beef also carries the PGI promise. PGI stands for Protected Geographical Indication and is a community scheme to protect and promote traditional and regional food products of high quality, which are unique to a geographic area.
Scotch Beef has long held this coveted PGI status, which also guarantees the beef is 100% traceable - right back to its farm of origin. The Scotch Beef label guarantees specific production methods and controls which are higher than those required by legislation.
Scottish farming has a proud history, and we are proud to be continually innovating and striving for excellence so that the future of farming in Scotland can be as good as the past.
When you see the Scotch Beef label in the supermarket or butcher's shop, it's your guarantee that the meat you're buying conforms to certain standards of animal welfare and food safety, which are among the strictest in the world.
All of which means that there’s nothing better than cooking with Scotch Beef, except, perhaps, having someone else do the cooking for you. Which is why we’re giving you the chance to win a delicious meal for two in a top class Scotch Beef Club restaurant.
