Midlothian food company Supernature has two of its rapeseed oils stocked at upmarket London department store Harrods.

The Gorebridge-based company’s deal for its black and white truffle oils came after the products were commended at the Great Taste Awards, where Michelin star chefs blind-taste products.

Lynn Mann from the family-run company said of the deal: “I sent them to a few upmarket stores and the buyer from Harrods got back in touch to say they loved the product and wanted to stock it. They have been really happy with the sales. I would imagine they will re-order this week.

“It’s very good kudos for the brand. It makes people stand up and take notice. We are looking at overseas supermarkets now, so if people see we are stocked at Harrods it gives us a benchmark, a calling card for us.”
