Down on the farm

MACKIES_35G_CHOC_BARS-1ABERDEENSHIRE farm-based food firm Mackie’s is forging ahead with its Scottish chocolate bar production.

The company has added 35g bars in all four flavours – Dark 70% Cocoa, Traditional milk chocolate, Mint, and Honeycomb – to its range.

The firm says the new size provides chocolate bars that are ideal as snacks  or as indulgent treats.

And the chocolate produced at its north-east Scotland farm is also playing a growing role in the firm’s established  ice-cream manufacturing operation.

It is releasing a Chocolate Orange flavour of ice cream for autumn and winter, made with its own chocolate as a base.
