Women Ahead members and guests took the road to Arbroath for what turned out to be a really inspiring lunchtime event. Mackays Chairman Paul Grant warmly welcomed the group and took us through the fascinating journey of Mackays Jams and Preserves, from humble beginnings in Carnoustie to an international and prestigious award winning company now based in Arbroath.
Then we all put on protective coats and hair nets to discover what makes Mackays products so special: from the open copper pans where boiling hot jam was bubbing to jar filling to packing. Standing and walking on a floor constantly hosed down with water, all were glad they had been warned not to wear their best shoes!
Mackays generously donated all proceeds of this event to Women Ahead Charity Alternatives as well as raffle prizes.
The visit could not have been complete without a visit to the factory shop, where a long queue at the till developed in minutes!
A truly impressive success story set to continue well into the future!
Women Ahead would like to thank Mackays and particularly Paul Grant for an excellent visit and their generosity.
