One thing we take real pride in at Craigie's is ensuring that we work with small producers and suppliers who are largely based in Scotland and who have a similar ethos to us. This month, we speak to the delicious chocolate makers James of Arran. They have been creating chocolates for the last 17 years using only the finest ingredients from around the world. If you are ever visiting the Isle of Arran be sure to stop by and see them.

 

As it's Valentine's Day this month we thought chocolate should be our hot topic for February so let's speak more to James of 'James of Arran'....

 

How does working with Craigie's support a company like James of Arran? 

"

Having our products placed in quality sales outlets like Craigie's is a must. We produce exclusive hand made chocolates and we work with companies like Craigie's Farm whose customers expect that quality. It is really important to us to be stocked by outlets like Craigie's to continue to develop sustainable sales.

If you were at point of sale in Craigie's what would you say to customers about your chocolates?

"Try our chocolates, you will not be disappointed!

"

Have you faced any challenges developing your business in Scotland?

 "

The biggest challenge is always to find the right high quality outlets, like Craigie's, who have a customer base that really appreciate the finest Scottish produce.

 

Sum up James of Arran in a few words?

 "James of Arran produce wonderful hand made chocolates using the finest ingredients from around the world. All of our products are lovingly made by a small team of highly skilled people bringing together wonderful and delicious flavours.
