Bidfood Scotland has opened its doors to a new, purpose built hospitality hub in Larbert, which will serve as the first of its kind for the Scottish food and drink sector.
Opened by Fergus Ewing MSP on 15 June, the hub sets out to work in partnership with Scottish food and drink suppliers as a dedicated ‘centre for excellence’, testing and developing new products.
The hub comprises a bar, deli, a fully operational industrial kitchen and non-food catering suite. The kitchen will be used to showcase products and keep customers up to date with the latest food trends.
Ewing said: “I’m delighted to have opened Bidfood’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.”
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.
