Cutting down on plastic at The Crieff Food Co
Cutting down on in-store plastic packaging is always front and centre in our minds here at The Crieff Food Co.
Our loose fruit and vegetables are a great way for us and you to cut back on plastics. Oh, and it’s nearly time for our wonderful Scottish Strawberries to be back in the store, so keep an eye out!
Meet the team
Meet Erin, one of our many amazing Foodhall Team Members making a huge impact after being with us for barely four months!
Erin is happiest serving all our wonderful customers but doesn’t particularly look forward to cutting the cheese, especially the tricky-to-cut parmesan.
There’s a good chance you might have seen Erin performing without realising it if you’ve ever been to Disneyland Paris. She worked as a performer there, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Micky, Minnie, Donald, and the rest of the gang!
Meet our Easter Egg Raffle winner!
And finally, huge congratulations to Ruth Findlay, winner of our amazing Easter Egg in our Easter Raffle.
Thank you to all who entered; we raised a brilliant sum for Alzheimer’s Research UK!
