Quality Meat Scotland’s new addition to drive healthy eating
Published:  09 August, 2017

Scottish industry body Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has welcomed a new health and education executive to the organisation. 

Twenty-five-year-old Mairi Sutherland will be taking over from Jenni Henderson to inspire young people to eat more healthily, and to communicate the nutritional benefits that red meat plays in a diet.

Sutherland has a degree in sport and exercise science from Edinburgh Napier University and has already worked for companies such as Virgin Active, Baillie Gifford and The University of Edinburgh.

Having been a Rainbow Guider for the Girl Guides for almost 10 years, Sutherland has experience working with young people, which will translate to her new position with QMS.

“Mairi brings a huge amount of practical knowledge and experience with her,” commented Carol McLaren, head of communications at QMS.

“This, coupled with a strong personal interest in health and nutrition, makes her a strong addition to the team and will undoubtedly strengthen our existing communication activities to promote the role of red meat in a healthy diet.”
