Tribute: Michael Malone
Mike will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and worked with him throughout his many years as a deeply committed and loyal member of the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers.
One of the founding fathers of the association, his long-standing involvement in our executive board was appreciated by all the presidents he served, each of whom knew they could always count on his support and his wise counsel whenever a difficult or challenging issue arose.
A strong advocate of the quality and integrity of Scotland’s red meat industry, Mike rarely involved himself in the politics of our industry, preferring instead to concentrate on producing a top class product for his customers.
For many years, he was also the reliable supplier of simply the very best beef for our annual conference dinner, a role which we all enjoyed to the full.
He was, in short, a true gentleman of the highest order.
