Tennent Caledonian has frozen wholesale prices of its main drinks brands for on-trade customers.

The move covers Tennent's Lager, Caledonia Best and Magners Golden Draught.

John Gilligan, managing director of Tennent Caledonian, said: "We recognise these are tough times for Scotland's free on-trade and we will continue to support and invest where we can, helping operators control their costs, develop their businesses and build a responsible drinking environment for their customers."

Paul Waterson, chief executive of the Scottish Licensed Trade Association, said: "This price freeze will certainly help our members to control their costs and drive footfall to their premises, which is much needed."
