Supermarket chain Booths has partnered with Dobbie Garden Centres to supply a range of over 50 popular Booths brand products.

Dobbies is one of the largest garden centre retailers in the UK, with over 40 stores across Scotland, England and Northern Ireland.

Booths will supply the garden centres with products, including their ready meals, pasta, desserts and delicatessen ranges.

“Booths had previously been a northern secret, but now a range of delicious products are available in three Dobbies garden centres in Scotland, meaning we can delight even more customers with our great quality Booths food and drink,” said Abby Talbot, head of Booths brand.

“The partnership with Dobbies is part of our business to business strategy to cultivate new markets, expand and develop our Booths brand range and enable more customers to discover what makes Booths so special.”

Archie Stewart, head of food at Dobbies, said: ‘‘Food is a key part of our offering at Dobbies and is becoming more important as consumers are looking for a convenient and quality food offer as they leave our stores.

“Our customers care about what they’re eating - where it comes from and of course how good it is. That’s why we’re teaming up with food experts and are thrilled to announce our partnership with Booths. The range we have introduced from Booths allows customers to take home a delicious dinner.”

Booths has stores across Cumbria, while there is a Dobbies garden centre in Orton Grange, near Carlisle.
