The food of Scotland’s favourite fictional family has been brought to life by husband and wife team Ann and Mathew Norbury. Maw Broon’s Kitchen is a range of ready meals bringing “home-cooked food straight from the freezer”. The couple’s Box Clever Brands has a two-year license agreement with DC Thomson of Dundee, the creator of the Broons, and the food is made by frozen ready-meal producer Canny Cook Ltd of Dunfermline.
With choices including rumbledethumps, clapshot and haggis, neeps and tatties, venison casserole and bacon wi’ beans, the Broons would be totally at home. Mathew, pictured, said: “Food and drink is a passion of ours. Our ethos is ‘convenience without compromise’, and we’re sourcing the very best local ingredients to cook in small batches using traditional methods for that authentic home-made taste. We use no artificial additives, preservatives or stabilisers in our food and it’s all blast frozen to lock in taste and nutrients. Freezing’s nature’s preserver – that’s why we use it.”
