Shaw shows the way

Derek Shaw

DUNDEE sweet shop owner Derek Shaw has helped Mackie’s of Scotland create its first new chocolate bar in six years.

Derek, who has 60 years experience in confectionery manufacture and retailing, first worked with Mackie’s to help develop its  own honeycomb. 

Now he has played a part in creating the brand’s orange milk chocolate bar.

He said: “The idea just hit me when I was up there on a visit.

“I realised Mackie’s had a perfect opportunity to infuse honeycomb dust with natural oils from oranges to create a special ingredient.

“When I was a boy at my first job we developed a knack for flavouring honeycomb.

“The tiny fragments that Mackie’s produce is perfect for taking on the orange flavour.”
