Food and Drink PR success post graphic of public relations expert Holyrood PR's spiral freezer story with Mackie's of Scotland

ICE CREAM giants, Mackie’s of Scotland celebrated its low carbon refrigeration system with a host of media coverage, thanks to Holyrood PR’s food and drink PR experts.

The double drum spiral freezer will allow Mackie’s to cut energy use by up to 80% and increase ice cream productivity on the Aberdeenshire farm.

Our team of food and drink PR experts told the story and delivered the following results:

Project Manager, Yzanne Turbett, said: “The installation of the spiral freezer marks a major milestone in this project. In our early planning phase we had no inclination of the problems which the country would face last year and the building work was indeed delayed at the start of the first lockdown.

The coverage our team secured for Mackie’s in the Press and Journal and numerous business titles positively pushes Mackie’s into the spotlight and expands its reputation as an energy efficient brand.

As well as the new spiral freezer Mackie’s also have a ten acre solar farm and use wind turbines to actively use renewable power on the farm.
