Supernature Oils has secured a listing for several of its multi award-winning cold pressed rapeseed oil products to an up-market grocery retailer in Dubai.

With 51 outlets across the United Arab Emirates, SPINNEYS is one of the leading supermarket chains in the Middle East.

The Midlothian-based company now has several of its popular Infused cold pressed rapeseed oils, its Gift packs, as well as its White and Black truffle oils on the shelves of the retailer.

Rapeseed oil is the fastest growing sector of the oils category in the UK, and is worth around £7.2 million, with Scottish Rapeseed Oil growing well in 2015. Sales of cold-pressed rapeseed oil in Scotland have grown by 18% in the past year, with 33,000 new shoppers buying the product for the first time.

Scottish cold pressed rapeseed oil is also now growing its reputation worldwide as a high quality, great-tasting alternative to olive oil, with Scottish producers now exporting to several countries.

Lynn Mann, co-owner of Supernature Oils said “I am absolutely delighted to have secured a listing for our products with SPINNEYS in Dubai. It’s a very interesting market which is just switching onto the wonders of cold pressed rapeseed oil, and I think there is huge potential there.’

The oils have become a firm favourite in the kitchen of top chefs including Martin Wishart, who uses the products in his Michelin-star restaurant. As well as recognition from top chefs, Supernature Oils have won a number of awards for their oils in the past 3 years including Great Taste Awards for their Original, Chilli, Basil, Lime, Lemon and also White and Black truffle oils, which have gained a Harrods listing.
