You’ve probably been receiving lots of emails from companies notifying you of updates to privacy policies because of changes to EU data protection laws – a result of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We’ve also updated our Privacy Policy, in order to:

• Give you more clear and detailed information about your collective rights and responsibilities with respect to your privacy and personal information.

• Make it easier for you to control the information you provide us. You’ll see that our policy explains your choices about this.

• Provide more detail about the measures we have in place to keep your personal information secure.

You can read the full text of our Privacy Policy here.


Under the terms of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation, which comes into effect in May 2018, we will need your consent to keep sending your emails. This means that if you’d like to receive emails from ScobiesDirect, you should let us know. If you don’t confirm your consent, you will no longer receive emails from us.

As you may know, ScobiesDirect sends out emails, usually 1-2 per week. We hope you find these emails useful and informative. For example, we often send emails letting people know what products we have promotions/discounts on, as well as emails telling you about new products or relevant industry news & events.


If you still want to hear us via e.g. emails, etc – which may offer discount codes, info on new products, industry news, information on industry events such as the Butchers Shop of the Year, etc, then it is very easy. Simply opt in by doing 1 of any of the 5 options below:

Phone us and let us know that you want to opt in – just quote reference GDPR and give us your name and postcode for us to update your ScobiesDirect Account.


When placing an order, while at Checkout tick the opt in box next to Your Data

Phone us to opt in

Login In to your ScobiesDirect Account. Once logged in, if you have not already optted in you will see a section near the top right: ‘GDPR – Your Data’, where you can opt in by clicking on the grey ‘Opt in’ button.

Opt in via your ScobiesDirect Account

After you have logged into your ScobiesDirect Account, in the dropdown list select “Your Details” and then within this page select the opt in in the box.

Login and update Your Details

Up until the 25th of May we will be sending out a number of emails asking if you want to opt in – simply click on the KEEP ME IN button in the email – easy.

Opt in via ScobiesDirect email

We do not sell your data to third parties and you will only receive correspondence from Scobies Direct.

You can change your mind at any time, but if you choose not to opt in we won’t be able to contact you after 25th May 2018. This would mean we wouldn’t be able to tell you about promotional discounts we have, such as butcher events like Butchers Shop of the Year, Love Lamb Week, Great British Beef Week, and many other events...

So please make sure you opt in – we’d be sad to see you go – and sad for you to miss out on the useful, informative and hopefully entertaining info. We hope you stay with us.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union.

If you run a business that has collected information on your customers or prospects, then you need to make sure your business will not be in breach of the new GDPR regulations come 25th May 2018.

Farm Shop & Deli Show

We had a great time at the Farm Shop & Deli Show this year. Hopefully you had a chance to attend - we were please to meet so many of our customers who visited our stand.

Shows like this are a great opportunity for us to meet face to face with people we usually only speak to over the phone or connect with via our website.

At our stand this year our focus was very much on our new Eco Shop products - we concentrated mainly on displaying: For those of you that we met at the show and who requested samples, please be assured that we are busy getting them sent to you.

If you weren't able to make it to this years Farm Shop & Deli Show in Birmingham, but you have questions on any of the products we were promoting above, then don't hesitate to get in touch with us - we're happy to help.
