Since acquiring c-store wholesaler Hall’s Direct in May, Glasgow-based Lomond Wholesale Food Co has bolstered its offering to butchers throughout Scotland.
Lomond’s product range now includes a selection of high quality British beef, pork and Scottish whole chickens, with UK beef and Scottish whole chickens being the best sellers of 2017 so far. The company says it envisages value added products increasing in popularity during the remainder of the year and throughout 2018.
As a result of the acquisition of Hall’s Direct, Lomond has acquired a 25,000 sq ft state-of-the-art distribution hub which will service 300 butchers across Scotland. This hub enables Lomond to continue to provide its growing customer base, split between independent retail and wholesale butchers, with the highest quality produce. As a further result of the acquisition, next day delivery is now also available on most items.
Sam Henderson, MD at Lomond, The Wholesale Food Co, commented: “The Lomond butchery range provides the retailer butcher with a great choice of products for his shop ensuring all customers are catered for. From Scottish chickens to prime cuts of UK beef, our new range offers great quality at great prices.”
