Stag Bakeries, the Isle of Lewis-based producer, has had its Smoked Dunlop Cheese Straws listed by Marks & Spencer (M&S).

The gourmet straws will be sold in 200 M&S stores in 100g packs for an RRP of £3.50. They are hand-baked and made with the heritage Scottish Dunlop Cheese, an organic, unpasteurised cheese traditionally smoked over whisky barrel shavings.

The listing expands the range of Stag Bakeries products sold by M&S, which has been selling the company’s Stornoway Seaweed Water Biscuits and Seaweed Oatcakes since April.

Charlie Macdonald, owner of Stag Bakeries, said: “We are obviously really pleased that Marks & Spencer has extended their listing to include the Smoked Dunlop Cheese Straw. We have been supplying them with our Stornoway Seaweed Water Biscuits and Seaweed Oatcakes since April and sales out of the store have been at an exceptional rate.

“Marks & Spencer is synonymous with British quality, so we are very pleased that our brand will continue to be featured in-store. This range extension will help showcase the breadth of our product range. We have exciting new products launching in 2016, which will continue to showcase our Scottish island heritage.”

Stag Bakeries supplies sweet and savoury biscuits to retail clients across the UK and abroad and produces bread, pastries, savouries and celebration cake for local island customers.
