Scott's are committed to providing you and your family with traditional porridge oats of the highest quality.
The finest oats are used and on arrival
at our mill in Cupar they are carefully inspected to ensure that they meet the high standards required.
Scott's work with local farmers and growers
to ensure this quality is maintained.
We have over 100 years experience in producing exceptional oats, which is why our oats are rolled thicker and gently kilned to create Scott's
distinctive taste and texture.
The Scott's Porage story begins in 1880, when two brothers started making Scott's Midlothian Oat Flour in Glasgow. Scott's reputation as a quality
brand quickly grew, and before long they were supplying royalty with a fortnightly order of oat cakes.
In 1914 our name was changed to
'Scott's Porage Oats' to distinguish it from competitors. The trademarked 'Porage' is a mixture of the old Scottish word 'poray'
and the French word 'potage'.
Scott's has undergone several factory changes, but our current manufacturing plant in Cupar, Fife, now produces 60,000 tonnes of oats a year,
making it the largest oat mill in Western Europe.
Our Highlander mascot on the front of Scott's Porage Oats cereal boxes has changed little since its initial creation in 1924,
and is a comfortingly familiar figure of health and vitality.
The mascot was temporarily replaced for the first time ever in 2010 when
Scott's partnered with Scottish Rugby to fuel them through the Six Nations and launched a limited edition range featuring three of Scotland's top rugby players -
