Stag Bakeries, a leading Scottish wholesale company, has secured a new export contract to Russia.

Despite being one of the remotest bakeries in the UK, located on the Isle of Lewis in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, it has secured an international order from a major food distributor.

The deal means that Stag’s biscuits are now on the shelves of some of the top gourmet Russian food stores, including Tsum, one of the most renowned high end department stores in Moscow, which is located opposite the Bolshoi Theatre.

Charlie Macdonald, owner at Stag Bakeries, said: “It is fantastic to see that Stag has international appeal. For the first time this year, we took part in an international trade show in Germany and, as a result, have had phenomenal interest in the Stag brand from all over the world. We are particularly pleased that an emerging market like Russia has expressed interest and Stag is now on sale in some of the best stores. There is huge potential for Stag in international markets.”

Founded in 1885, the company supplies delis nationwide and the foodservice arena.


Macdonald added: “We are concentrating on growing our export sales and hoping to penetrate a number of markets this year. We are very much looking forward to the future.”
