Paterson’s becomes official supplier to athletics event

West Lothian shortbread manufacturer Paterson’s has been named official biscuit supplier to the European Athletics Indoor Championships Glasgow 2019.

The championships, which take place at the Emirates Arena on 1-3 March, will see Paterson’s supply athletes, officials, volunteers and guests with a range of shortbread and biscuits.

Visitors will also be able to try Paterson’s latest new product – a Giant Jammy Shortbread, which features shortbread filled with strawberry jam from the Isle of Arran.

“I’m delighted to have Paterson’s join us as the official biscuit supplier, as they are a company steeped in great tradition and history,” said Billy Garrett, director of sport and events at Glasgow Life and co-chair of the Glasgow 2019 steering committee.

“A wide range of their fantastic products will be available throughout competition days, and will help ensure the on-site experience is at the highest level.”

Paterson’s brand manager Jonathan Guild added he was “delighted” with the partnership.

The business was founded in 1985 by Mr & Mrs Paterson in Rutherglen, Glasgow and has since grown to manufacture and sell millions of biscuits, oatcakes and jam across the globe.
