Our Story

Our journey spans many generations, dating back to 1873 when two enterprising brothers’ Robert and William Scott started harvesting strawberries. Today, we continue to embrace our heritage and are committed to continually moving forward by investing in our factory, equipment, product development and people to keep R&W Scott at the forefront of innovation.


Robert and William Scott planted half an acre of strawberries at Mashockmill Orchard. Fruit harvesting was practically unheard of until our founding father, Robert Scott, learnt his craft. The fertile soil and favourable weather yielded incredible results and the business took off from there!


After being family-run for over 5 generations, the Scott family sell to Hero. Complementing continued growth within preserves, R&W Scott start to manufacture chocolate coatings. Coatings become the largest product by the end of the 1980s.


Chocolate Coatings now represent a large proportion of R&W Scott's volumes. R&W Scott is acquired by Napier Brown, who in turn become part of Real Good Food Plc.


R&W Scott invest significant capital in improving their site in Carluke, in Central Scotland. This investment increases focus on preserves; however chocolate coatings are still majority. R&W Scott are operating independently within Real Good Food Plc.


R&W Scott completed a Management Buy Out led by MD John Easton, along with fellow directors Stephen Currie and Michael Hewitt.
