Shahid Razzaq, better known as Mo, is an independent store owner from Blantyre, Glasgow, with more than 20 years’ experience in retailing.
He joined the Fed’s Scottish Executive in 2011 and has since gone on to be Scottish vice president in 2014 and president in 2015.
He is currently a member of the Fed’s National Council and National Executive and has been chairman of the Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) committee for Scotland since 2018, helping to drive forward DRS.
Mo has been heavily involved in the proposed DRS scheme in Scotland from the outset, taking part in regular discussions with all parties involved, including Circularity Scotland, government ministers, reverse vending machine suppliers and waste management companies.
As the Fed’s representative, he is committed to ensuring a DRS scheme that works for all concerned, particularly the members of the Fed in Scotland who will act as return points for the scheme.
