Gibson congratulates Forres world champions

News release
Immediate release

Highlands and Islands SNP MSP has lodged a motion in parliament congratulating Murdoch Brothers butchers of Forres on their success at the 2010 World Scotch Pie championships.

The Forres based butchers beat of stiff competition from a record breaking 85 entrants to claim top spot in the steak pie category prize last week. They also picked up a bronze award for their pork pie

The butchers are a family company founded three generations ago, and uses world-class quality ingredients for its 40-year-old original family recipe which is still in use today.

Mr Gibson said…

"This is an impressive result for the Murdoch Brothers Butchers; they beat off stiff competition to win the crown. The victory is no mean achievement this was a year of record entries so it is an impressive feather in their cap."

"This win means that Forres has it's very own world champions. It is important that in the recession and an age when people are more likely to shop in the supermarket than locally then it is important that people recognise the quality that is on their doorstep."

"Competitions like this are a great way of show casing excellence. It is clear that Murdoch Brothers has that in both it's steak pies and pork pies too."
