What’s This All About

“We really wanted to find a way to help the communities that have supported us so greatly through the years”

Julie Nisbet, Managing Director, Strathmore Foods

The McInvest Community Grant Awards is the first of its kind for the McIntosh brand and a chance for us to give back to local communities. We want to help make a real difference and offer support to local areas where additional funding is needed to fulfil community projects.

Funds are available to support 1 community project every month of all different shapes and sizes, so whether you’re looking to make changes, improve or progress a project with your local community group – we want to hear from you!


Julie Nisbet, Managing Director and Douglas Nisbet, Operations Director at Strathmore Foods

Julie Nisbet, managing director of Strathmore Foods, explains:

“This project is really appropriate to who we are as a company – we are a family run business and our consumers are very loyal to us, so it’s nice to be able to give something back to them…essentially, a thank you to the people who enjoy our food.”

To qualify for a chance to receive part of the McInvest Community Grant Awards you must be a member of, attend or represent a local community group within the UK.

There is a maximum of one entry per community based project for the competition.

“Whether it’s allowing a Cub Scout group to put some new windows on their cub hut or helping a group who take children out to enjoy a day at the theatre or the park, even a pensioner’s group who want to go out for a meal, we want to consider every avenue and cause.”

Julie Nisbet, Managing Director of Strathmore Foods
