The Stahly family has been making haggis in Scotland since 1923, but it was not until 1994, that Ken Stahly set up Glenrothes based STAHLY QUALITY FOODS, and began supplying haggis in a can to world famous stores such as Selfridges, Harrods, and Fortnum & Mason. This convenient form of haggis marketing soon became very popular, and after a few years, persistent requests from America for this Scottish staple began arriving in Ken’s Glenrothes mail box. At this time, after discussions with Camwrap, Ken decided that to avoid stringent US import regulations, he would bring the secret family recipes to America for production here with the full blessing of all the necessary government agencies. This huge undertaking was finally accomplished in 2003, and Camwrap began distribution immediately, soon reaching selected stores and restaurants nationwide. Now, and for the past several years, Scottish expat’s and all US citizens with an interest in Scottish culture and traditions (millions?) can readily obtain and share with friends and family that special treat that Scots at home have been enjoying for centuries.
