Ross-shire world leader to be eaten at Parliament

News release
Immediate release

A Ross-shire first world champion is to be eaten during a celebration in Parliament next week.

For the 3rd consecutive year Cockburn's haggis from Dingwall (which won the honour as the First World champion Haggis Maker) will be served at the Scottish Parliament Burns night celebrations.

Highlands and Islands SNP MSP Rob Gibson, who secured the reappearance of the Haggis, said that Cockburn's continued to show the way in haggis making.

Mr Gibson who will be singing at the event also said…

"Cockburn's haggis is the chieftain of the haggis race. I've yet to taste a better. It goes down extremely well at Parliament and it was not too difficult to get the organisers to agree to serve it again."

"Great credit goes to the butchers at Cockburn's in Dingwall. The Scottish Government food policy is about promoting and recognising the healthy and sustainable and excellent produces from right across Scotland. In the Highlands and Islands we are spoilt for choice."

"Produce such as Cockburn's are key to this policy and will confirm Scotland as a land of food. I am looking forward to raising a glass to the bard and the haggis next week."
