West Lothian shortbread manufacturer Paterson’s has been named official biscuit supplier to the European Athletics Indoor Championships Glasgow 2019.

The championships, which take place at the Emirates Arena on 1-3 March, will see Paterson’s supply athletes, officials, volunteers and guests with a range of shortbread and biscuits.

Visitors will also be able to try Paterson’s latest new product – a Giant Jammy Shortbread, which features shortbread filled with strawberry jam from the Isle of Arran.

“I’m delighted to have Paterson’s join us as the official biscuit supplier, as they are a company steeped in great tradition and history,” said Billy Garrett, director of sport and events at Glasgow Life and co-chair of the Glasgow 2019 steering committee.

“A wide range of their fantastic products will be available throughout competition days, and will help ensure the on-site experience is at the highest level.”

Paterson’s brand manager Jonathan Guild added he was “delighted” with the partnership.

The business was founded in 1985 by Mr & Mrs Paterson in Rutherglen, Glasgow and has since grown to manufacture and sell millions of biscuits, oatcakes and jam across the globe.
