Buffalo Milk ice cream available for the first time at Scotmid stores in Edinburgh and Lothians


From today the local community will be able to purchase the product in store which until now has only been available at The Buffalo Farm in Fife.

Founded in 2005, The Buffalo Farm is the third of five Scottish businesses to win the Scotmid Scottish Favorites competition, which gives ice cream a prominent place on the shelves of select Scotmid stores.

The competition was launched by the retailer to champion local producers and further demonstrates its commitment to Scottish sourcing.

When asked what’s so special about buffalo milk, he replies, “With our Buffalo ice cream, produced from the milk of our own herd, we believe customers will embrace the concept of brand and will then be amazed at the quality of the product.

“Milk has several unique properties, and we were looking for another way to add value to the product line. With a slightly higher fat content than regular cow’s milk, it’s the perfect base ingredient to make our luxuriously rich ice cream.

“Raspberry Ripple was the obvious choice, as one of the nations favorite traditional ice cream flavors.”

Jessica Van Tromp, Local Sourcing Manager at Scotmid, said: “We are delighted to be able to stock such an innovative and delicious product in our stores in Edinburgh and Lothians. It’s great to be able to support The Buffalo Farm, expanding its presence from Fife to key areas of Scotland.
