Interview with Boyd Tunnock by Janice Ross on ScotSpeak- Tues 26th Feb 6pm
Boyd Tunnock and Janice Ross
Scots’ Speak guest this week is Boyd Tunnock from Uddingston, the man who is responsible for the weekly production of millions of chocolate teacakes, snowballs and wafers which are enjoyed in over 40 countries. He celebrates the achievement of his local workforce in producing three of the most iconic biscuits purchased daily. As well as sponsoring, hosting and judging school poetry competitions, the RNLI, and the Uddingston Musical Festival, Boyd, like Willie Wonka can be found, adorned with white overall and hairnet, accompanying groups on magical guided tours of the factory. A stone’s throw from his great-grandfather’s undertakers, the factory remains steadfastly an iconic symbol of the family’s enduring links to the community he loves so well.
