One of Scotland's best-known crisp brands - Mackie's - is taking on a new name.

Mackie's crisps and popcorn products are being rebranded as Taylors by owner Taylors Snacks.

The new branding will be seen on supermarket shelves across the country from next month.

The move comes after the Perthshire-based Taylor family bought out Aberdeenshire ice-cream producer Mackie's of Scotland's share in Mackie's at Taypack last year.

The two companies had run it as a joint venture since 2009.

James Taylor, managing director of Taylors Snacks, told the BBC: "Showcasing our new image is a massive milestone for us at Taylors Snacks.

Massive opportunity

"The upcoming summer brings with it massive opportunity for Taylors Snacks.

"Not only will our colourful crisp packets hit the shelves in the coming weeks, but we're set to continue to grow our team and expand our product ranges within the market."

In September, the business took over major popcorn maker South Yorkshire Foods, as part of a growth drive.
