The Mackie’s: through the generations

Mackie’s of Scotland today is the outcome of the effort and foresight of four generations of Mackie family and our wider family of staff.


Mackie’s ice cream is currently the main focus of the business, employing 61 people and producing over 10 million litres of luxury ice cream each year.


The company is owned by the Mackie family. Mac Mackie is Managing Director of the company and his two sisters, Karin and Kirstin also have senior management roles — Karin is Marketing Director and Kirstin is Development Director. 


Mackie’s is now a fourth generation family business, with a five generation old tradition of first sons called Maitland Mackie and each Maitland as an entrepreneurial innovator has, in his own way, contributed to the development of the business.
