Social Bite – the social enterprise dedicated to ending homelessness in Scotland – has entered into its first retail partnership, with Scotmid.
This means branded products, normally only available directly from Social Bite, will now be for sale initially in two Scotmid stores in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge district: Raeburn Place and Hamilton Place.
The partnership provides an opportunity for more people to sample Social Bite’s range of healthy handmade produce, while also drawing attention to the broader work of the enterprise.
Jane Bruce (pictured centre), CEO of Social Bite Scotland, said: “Scotmid has been a staunch supporter of Social Bite from the early days, sharing our vision and passion for improving lives. By stocking Social Bite branded sandwiches, wraps and salad boxes Scotmid is reaffirming its commitment to the quality of our food and the validity of our mission.”
Kevin Plant (pictured left), Scotmid’s Head of Food Retail, added: “It is fantastic to see the next chapter in our ongoing friendship with Social Bite come to life and we’re incredibly proud to become the first stockists of Social Bite’s products.
“As a community retailer, Social Bite’s cause really resonates with our members and customers and matches our core purpose, which is to serve our communities and improve people’s everyday lives.”
