BSW Timber has partnered with Italian food manufacturer SprestoItalia to aid in the production of a new range of commercial condiment products.

Spruce tips from BSW Group’s Scottish forests will be used for the first time in a range of pesto products, produced by the Brescia based business.

Aprile D’Fulsilli, spokesperson at Spresto said: “Here at Spresto, we’re always on the lookout for new and exciting flavours to add to our range of delicious pesto products. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our latest range of pesto made from Scottish spruce tips!”

A statement on the Spresto Italia website read:

“What are spruce tips? Spruce tips are the fresh, new growths on the tips of spruce trees that appear in the spring. They have a subtle, citrusy flavour that’s reminiscent of pine and lemon, making them the perfect addition to our pesto.

We carefully pick the spruce tips from the forests of Scotland, ensuring that only the freshest and most flavourful tips make it into our pesto. We then combine them with garlic, pine nuts, olive oil, and other carefully selected ingredients to create a unique and delicious pesto that’s bursting with flavour.

Our Scottish spruce tip pesto is not only delicious, but it’s also vegan and gluten-free, making it the perfect addition to any meal. Use it as a dip for vegetables or crackers, as a spread on sandwiches, or as a sauce for your favourite pasta dishes. The possibilities are endless!

We’re proud to support sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, and our Scottish spruce tip pesto is no exception. By using spruce tips that are naturally occurring and abundant in Scottish forests, we’re helping to reduce waste and support the local ecosystem.

We’re excited to share our new range of pesto made from Scottish spruce tips with food lovers everywhere. Try it for yourself and experience the unique and delicious flavour that only spruce tips can bring to your meals. Shop our range online or find us at a local store near you.”
