AN ethical Scottish food producer has donated 10,000 hand-crafted oat bars to Social Bite, the sandwich shop chain which helps homeless people by raising money, feeding and employing them.

Dario Riccomini, the manager of Glasgow-based Aldomak, said: “We pride ourselves on being an ethical business and, when we read about the excellent work being undertaken by Social Bite on behalf of homeless people, wanted to play our part by donating part of our production run to it.”

Aldomak and in the Riccomini family have been part of the cultural fabric of Glasgow since 1932 and has served the café and ice cream scene since the 1970s.

Besides its Glasgow outlet, Social Bite, which donates all profits to charity and feeds more than 150 homeless people each day, also has shops in Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

The capital outlet has attracted attention through the visits of Hollywood A-listers George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio.
