Scarlets and Blas y Tir continue partnership for an eighth year

Rob LloydNews

Scarlets are thrilled to be continuing their partnership with Puffin Produce, Wales’ largest producer of fresh vegetables.

Based in Pembrokeshire, Puffin have been growing and supplying a range of ethically sourced Welsh produce since the 1970s, including the award-winning Blas y Tir and Root Zero – the UK’s first carbon neutral potatoes.

This will be the eighth consecutive year that Puffin will support the Scarlets, including a sponsorship deal that will see their Welsh brand ‘Blas y Tir’ advertised across the stadium where they’re regular visitors to the Oil 4 Wales Business Club on matchdays. Puffin’s produce is often used across the stadium’s menus, which help aid the players’ nutritional requirements.

Scarlets Head of Commercial Garan Evans said: “Puffin are a proud Pembrokeshire company with their roots firmly in West Wales. They have given us fantastic support for the last eight years and we are delighted that they are continuing to be part of the Scarlets commercial family.”

Puffin’s Chief Executive Officer Huw Thomas said: “It has been a pleasure supporting the Scarlets over the last eight years and we are excited to extend that partnership for another season.”
