The Bridge of Allan based company said the contract will be effective immediately.

Robert Graham (pictured right), managing director, said: “Today’s announcement is just the start of a very exciting and interesting new year for Graham’s in 2016.”

He added: “We value highly the relationships we have with our 98 farmers and this deal is beneficial for all involved.” 

Ian Cranna, VP marketing and category, Starbucks EMEA, said: “We’re committed to partnering with the best local suppliers to give our customers the best experiences in store.”

Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead (pictured centre), added: “In September last year I wrote to food service companies and other purchasers urging them to play their part to help ensure a thriving future for Scotland’s dairy sector at a time of difficult market conditions.

“Our dairy farmers are facing an extremely challenging time – caused mainly by unfavourable global factors – and we must therefore all get behind the industry and source locally when and where we can. Initiatives such as this are to be applauded and I urge businesses to always consider the excellent Scottish offer when making purchasing decisions.”
