Lomond, the wholesale food co, has revealed a new hot food offering that not only provides menu choices for the traditional three-meals-a-day model, but also offers hot snacks to satisfy the trend for grazing.
The new range includes sizzling breakfast favourites such as sausage or bacon rolls, breakfast pizza twists and Scottish muffins with sausage patties and egg.
For lunches, the Scottish wholesaler now offers cooked and breaded or steamed chicken, farm-to-fork burger patties (both raw and cooked) and a range of pulled meats (beef, pork, ham and chicken). There is also a Wing and Rib bar concept, offering mini ribs in BBQ and Chinese flavours, Mesquite buffalo wings and lightly dusted wings in Frank’s Hot Sauce. The Side Kick range offers fiery mozzarella balls, jalapeño cheese poppers, chilli chicken fries and flamin’ chicken chunks.
There’s even a prepared-for-later range for customers to take home and enjoy including a lamb shank, rack of ribs and chilli brisket.
Barbara Henderson, director of Lomond, said: “Whether it’s a bacon roll for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch or a something sweet and indulgent mid-afternoon, we know food to go is a huge opportunity for retailers and foodservice operators.
“However, competition is fierce and it’s essential that they stand out from the competition with high-quality, affordable food-to-go options that can rival even the most sophisticated high street operator.
“The new hot food is backed up with quality point of sale as well as unique servery equipment options, such as our amazing Wing and Rib cart.”
