When BBC’s The One Show appealed to the country for help on behalf of foodbanks, Dundee based CJ Lang & Son Ltd was quick to jump into action.

Dundee Foodbank appeared on the show earlier this week to request donations, especially tea and coffee. The foodbank were able to collect a donation of 50 cases of each product from CJ Lang’s depot on Longtown Road.

Colin McLean, CEO of CJ Lang & Son Ltd, said: “Both prior to and during COVID-19, CJ Lang have been supporting local communities, charities and foodbanks across Scotland.

“We are very aware of the great work our local Dundee foodbank have been doing and wanted to further support them after seeing their recent appeal.

“We have more than 300 stores across Scotland, but our roots are in Dundee and we hope this donation goes a small way to helping our neighbours.”

A special mention of CJ Lang’s donation was made on The One Show’s Thursday programme. The SPAR wholesaler for Scotland and the Lang Foundation have made significant donations to foodbanks locally and across Scotland, supporting the communities surrounding their stores. Since March 2020, nearly £10,000 has been donated from across the company.
