We are thrilled that Karin Hayhow, 4th generation farmer and Marketing Director of the well-known family-run business Mackie’s of Scotland will share her story at this member-only online event on Wednesday 22nd September at 7.30pm.

Mackie's of Scotland logoFarming on a 1600 acre, 280 head dairy farm in Westertown, Aberdeenshire, the family began making ice cream in 1986.  They have since launched over 220 products, made over 1000 flavours, made countless mistakes and had many good parties – a combination which provides them with lots of fond memories!

Mackie’s of Scotland’s mission is to become a trusted global brand from the greenest company in Britain created by people having fun!
