The Smith Anderson Story

The story of Smith Anderson is a remarkable tale of enterprise and innovation that dates back to 1859.

In this account of a Fife family firm dedicated to investment in people and technology, David Verden-Anderson and David Munro explore the challenges faced by the company as it entered into the 21st century and the success that enables this business to output 60 million bags each week from their site in Kirkcaldy.

This book is dedicated to the memory of Gavin Verden-Anderson who tragically died in a scuba diving accident in 2018.

60% of the cost of this book will be donated to, which was a movement close to Gavin’s heart and dedicated to removing plastic waste from the world’s oceans.

The book is now available to buy online @ £25.00 + £4.00 UK shipping:
