Bidfood serves up Scotland's first food and drink hospitality hub

Bidfood Scotland has opened a new purpose built hospitality hub in Larbert, Scotland which will serve the £14b Scottish food and drink sector.

Opened last month by Fergus Ewing, the hub has been devised to work in partnership with Scottish food and drink suppliers as a dedicated ‘centre for excellence', testing and developing new products as well as supporting menu development and innovation for its customers across hotels, restaurants, cafés, care homes, healthcare and education in Scotland.

Speaking about the hub, Fergus Ewing, MSP and cabinet secretary for the Rural Economy and Connectivity said: "I'm delighted to have opened Bidfood Scotland's hospitality hub. The wholesale sector represents a huge part of our food and drink economy in Scotland, and it's fantastic to see Bidfood's investment in this innovative facility and the exciting prospects it will bring for Scottish food and drink suppliers and customers throughout the country."

Katie Sillars, business development manager for Bidfood Scotland said: "It's exciting to finally open our doors and showcase what the site can offer. We've been planning the hub for a long time, so it's fantastic to see our vision coming to life, and to celebrate this with industry colleagues. We look forward to sharing this concept with our customers and partners over the coming months and in the future."

Scottish suppliers featured at the launch included The Scottish Salmon Company, Scotlay Eggs, Yester Farm Dairies, Inverloch Cheese company, First Milk, Cobbs Cakes and Aulds desserts.
