A lot has changed since Simon opened his first shop here in Dunning in 1986! But one thing that has consistently remained the same is the value we place on the talent and hard work of those who work here and their role in making us the award-winning company we are today.
Watch our video to enjoy the picturesque journey into Dunning before taking a look behind the scenes at what’s involved in bringing Simon Howie products to the nation!
Our head office and factory are nestled at the foot of the Ochil Hills here in Dunning. Although you can reach Dunning by bus, the ability to travel by car is recommended.
If you are travelling here by bus, the number 17 leaves from Scott Street in Perth and arrives at St. Serf’s Church in Dunning it carries on its journey to Auchterarder. From there, it is a short, 5-minute walk up the hill along Muckhart Road before reaching the office and factory.
If driving by car, we are only a 20 minute drive from Perth, half an hour from Stirling, and approximately 1 hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow.
When travelling southbound from Perth, follow the A9 towards Stirling for 10 miles before turning left onto the B9141 (signposted Dunning and St. Serf’s Church). Follow the road until you come to the crossroads after passing Dunning Primary School on the left. Continue straight ahead along Muckhart Road following signs for Simon Howie Foods and the factory will be on your right-hand side.

I love working at Simon Howie as it’s a fast paced environment where everyone’s contribution makes a difference. Working for a well-known brand with a diverse product range is great as there is always something going on, challenges to be overcome and success to be celebrated.
As an entrepreneurial company we regularly invest in our people and our capabilities to ensure we are the best we can be and are producing the best products we can make. I’m super proud to work for Simon Howie and delighted to be a part of this great team.
I love my role as Technical Assistant at Simon Howie because my job is so varied. I work between the office and the factory and I like that this lets me get to know staff in other departments as well as my own.
I like that I can work part time hours as I have two young children so the flexible working hours gives me a good work/life balance. Working in Technical can be challenging at times, but our team is great so there is always someone to help you out if you need it.
I like the job and it’s a good team.
