Noodles are a favourite with people of all ages, and they’ve been given an even tastier twist thanks to Quality Meat Scotland and Specially Selected Pork.
Specially Selected Pork is assured pork from Scotland. In a nutshell, Specially Selected Pork is from specific animals that are sourced from selected farms, adopting best practice including animal welfare and natural production methods.
Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has been awarded £125,000 to help fund a brand new marketing and public relations campaign to promote Specially Selected Pork.
