With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought we’d share some delicious recipes, helping you offer your customers something delicious to treat their loved ones to.
Now that January is over and we’re well into 2019 already, we thought we’d look back on an eventful month for Lomond Foods – what a great way to start the year!
It’s almost here…time to cuddle up to your one-and-only and treat them right!
You can now order our lovely Heart-Shaped Empire Biscuits, just in time for Valentine’s day.
Heart-shaped biscuits with a cutout, sandwiched with fruity jam and finished with pink and white fondant icing. These are ideal for a coffee shop special, served along with a cuppa or a nice end to a meal alongside a coffee.
Priced at £9.60 for a box of 12 – just 80p a biscuit – these are a great way to bring some lovin’ to your customers.
While we’re on the subject of Cake, how about a showcase day all about our sweet treats? We’re hosting a showcase day at our Bakery in Thornliebank on March 13th. Our usual showcase days cover everything food-to-go as well as a tour of our Glasgow depot, but we wanted our customers to get the full Cake experience this time around.
As well as a tour of our bakery and a Cake-based presentation you’ll also get to try as many of our Cakes as you can from our display. So whether you’re looking at loaf cakes for your cafe, traybakes for your snack van, or show-stopping triple-layer cocktail cakes for your coffee shop – we’ve got you covered.
To order our love heart empires, or find out more about our showcase days, speak to our team on 0141 353 6777 or contact your sales rep.
To celebrate the launch of our new Cake website and some delicious new products, we’re holding a ra-ra day for telesales, with great deals on new Cake products.
Our new Eton Mess Traybake is only £7.80 – that’s just 65p per portion. Crumbly shortbread base, with a layer of fruity jam, meringue pieces and raspberry pieces, topped with luxurious white chocolate. The perfect twist on a classic favourite.
The Lemon Drizzle Traybake is another classic flavour combo and available for only £5.99 per tray – that’s just 42p per portion. Soft, lemon & poppyseed sponge, drizzled with a sweet lemon syrup and finished off with a swirl of icing. Light, delicious and perfect with a cuppa!
Keep your customers (and cupid) happy this Valentine’s Day: the return of our Love Heart Empire Biscuits. A classic favourite, made even more LOVELY. Two love-heart shaped shortbread biscuits, sandwiched with fruity jam and topped off with white icing and pink stripes. £9.60 for a box of 12 – just 80p per biscuit!
We might have been speaking a lot about vegan and vegetarian diets recently (check out our social channels if that’s more your bag) – but don’t worry – we’re still committed to offering a huge range of butchery products – from poultry and beef, to game and lamb – we’ve got everything you need.
To help keep you informed, we’ve created a handy guide to cuts of beef. This guide covers everything from head to tail -the occasional cut might not be listed on our product list but if it’s on this diagram – we can get it for you!
We’ve also included a handy guide to which cuts of beef are best for roasting – that’s on page 26 along with some suggested sides – we like to do things a bit differently here at Lomond!
If you’re looking for help with the best way to cook certain cuts of meat, you can speak with our highly trained sales team. We have a wealth of knowledge across the teams – from buying to telesales and our sales reps – we’re sure to help you no matter what you’re query.
For more information on our range of butchery products, speak with your sales rep, or call the team on 0141 353 6777.
As many of you will be aware, here at Lomond we have our very own bakery, specialising in cakes, traybakes and scones – distributing those all over Scotland and the UK.
On pages 10-13 of our 2019 brochure, we’ve got our full Cake listing, as well as a double page spread on some creative new products and delicious triple-layered cocktail cakes – don’t worry, they’re alcohol free!
Our range is constantly expanding, thanks to our in-house NPD team and under the watchful eye of the bakery boss, Lauren, the Cake team hand make all our bakes to the best possible standard.
Some notable new additions include our bundt cakes – mini versions of the classic bake, available in 4 different flavours, each as popular and lip-smackingly yummy as the next – Lemon Drizzle & Poppyseed; Chocolate & Walnut; Cherry Bakewell and Raspberry & Coconut.
The cocktail cakes are inspired by classic cocktails, using only natural flavourings and not a drop of alcohol in sight! You can choose from – Gin, Lemon & Lime; Strawberry Bellini; White Russian and Blueberry Mojito – a difficult choice if we say so ourselves.
Keep your eyes peeled for many seasonal treats including halloween crispies, love heart empires for valentines day and easter slices – complete with chocolate eggs.
Whatever your sweet treat needs may be, you can be sure to find a solution from Lomond and Cake.
To find out more, speak to your sales rep, or call the team on 0141 353 6777.
This morning we’re continuing our look inside the 2019 product brochure – this time, focussing on our food-to-go sandwich concepts.
You’ll find everything you need to know about our range of tasty lunchtime eats on pages 8-9.
We have 3 ranges of sandwich concepts to choose from, each aimed at a different consumer, helping you take advantage of every opportunity. These are all designed to be made in advance, then kept in the fridge so your customers can grab and go – helping you manage staffing, time and reducing the queues during the lunchtime rush! All of our ranges come with their own POS, detailing calorie and nutritional information, as well as build guides – these are step-by-step guides, with pictures, meaning anyone of your staff can pick up the manual and create perfect results every time.
The Most Wanted range includes classic flavours, such as Tuna Mayo, Chicken Mayo & Bacon and BBQ Pulled Pork, served on either a malted wheat baguette or a white baguette. Our Most Wanted range is also a part of the offering for our food-to-go all-in-one solution, giving you a complete set up to start offering food to go in your business.
Eat the World features flavours from across the globe: our team travelled the world to bring you the tastiest eats and breads from the USA, Australia and beyond. Flavours include the vegetarian Hot Falafel – spicy roquito peppers with falafel, yoghurt, jalapeños and avocado; The Aussie – turkey, avocado, beetroot and spinach and the PPP – BBQ pulled pork on our pretzel bun, with coleslaw and pickles.
The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread showcases some of our more inventive breads, such as our focaccia sheet, filled with salami, mozzarella, pesto, sun blush tomatoes and rocket; our beetroot wrap, filled with cajun chicken and peppers – guaranteed to be an eye-catcher!
If you want to find out more about any of our sandwich ranges, Nom Stop, or any of our other food to go products – you can speak with your sales rep, or call the office on 0141 353 6777.
Our new 2019 product brochure contains a full product list, featuring all your favourites and loads of new products.
We wanted to give our customers something more than that – so we’ve created a handful of Taste Sensations – delicious recipes and quick serving-suggestions, which help you save time and offer your customers something different from their usual eats.
On page 18 you’ll find a delicious Mexican spread, simply serve up a variety of our ready-to-serve Mexican options and you’ll have a fantastic platter which you can serve as a main meal or sharing course, just adjust the quantities as you need.
Why not mix it up? We offer a range of ready made foods (p.50-52) including buffet options, quiche and sweet canapés – perfect for your next party buffet!
Our next Taste Sensation features succulent roast beef, paired with some sides which will help you stand out from the crowd. We like ours with fries, pesto and some sliced pepper, but you can choose from our wide range of vegetables (p.63 – 65) nothing should be off limits!
If you’re looking to cut-down on your meat intake, have a look for our vegan and vegetarian symbols throughout the brochure. We are always on the lookout for new, exciting products, especially those who help you offer on-trend options to your customers. Keep your eyes peeled for some exciting vegan promotions and new products over the coming weeks.
On page 37 we have another staff favourite – seafood pasta. One of our colleagues eats this pretty much every week! (Thanks for the recipe Nikki!)
As with all our recipes, you can adapt this to work for you. Why not add some flakes of hot smoked salmon? Or serve alongside some grilled seabass? These recipes are fantastic as they are, but all it takes is a little tweak here and there to personalise and make it your own.
The final Taste Sensation is a middle-eastern Shakshuka – eggs baked a tomato and mixed vegetable sauce.
If you can get your hands on some fresh parsley, this will add an extra freshness to the dish, but if you’re using our products, you’re still able to make something really tasty. This is ideal served as a soup alternative for lunch and tastes just as good from the fridge the next morning, if making at home.
We added these Taste Sensations to the brochure to give you a taste of what you can create, purely using products available from the Lomond 2019 brochure. We hope you enjoy trying them out.

What a start to 2019 – our new brochure is on it’s way to you all and we’ve had a busy few weeks already. It’s set to be a really exciting year here at Lomond – with our Taste 2019 trade show in May and various on-trend product launches happening soon. We’re looking forward to a fantastic year.
The first big news of 2019 is the arrival of our new brochure. It should be on it’s way to you now, but before it arrives, we wanted to share some sneak peeks with you and let you know about some of the features you’ll find inside.
On pages 6 – 7 you’ll find a feature on our new, all-in-one food-to-go solution – Nom Stop.
Pages 6-7 of our 2019 brochure, showing Nom Stop information.
We’ve done things a bit differently and made things a lot easier for you – we take care of everything from initial surveys, installation and equipment to product build guides, menu display and the food you sell.
As well as a fridge, freezer and hot hold, ambient & chill cabinets, we also supply you with a panini grill, bain-marie for soup and a Merrychef high-speed oven – allowing you to heat and serve a wide range of products. All of these options mean that you can serve a wide range of products, keeping your customers happy and coming back for more.
We provide ongoing support from our sales, technical and creative teams, meaning you can focus on selling the food while we take care of the rest. We will provide you with branded aprons and greaseproof paper, product imagery and USB menus – bespoke to you and your product range.
It can be a minefield trying to navigate the set-up on your own, making sure you have waste management in place, properly training your staff and making sure the products are made to the same standard time and time again – our in-house technical team will train you on food safety, provide you with allergen guides and product builds, taking the hassle out of setting up food-to-go.
Our first Nom Stop is launching next Tuesday 22nd January, in Millerston. Keep your eyes on our social media to find out more about our launch offers and see how the first Nom Stop opening has gone.
If you would like more information on Nom Stop, please call our team on 0141 353 6777 and speak with Craig or Nikki.
We’ll be posting more sneak peeks of our brochure over the coming days.
Your brochure should be in the post, but you can request a copy from your rep or by calling 0141 353 6777 and speaking to our telesales team.
