Lomond has launched a brand-new brochure championing its range of local Scottish produce, with the ‘Taste of Scotland Food Guide’ coming after the success of its trade show where it dedicated 50% of space to Scottish food.
The guide, which features 69 Scottish producers, has all the usual information found in product guides but also illustrates the product’s food miles.
“Following the response to our trade show where we saw unprecedented growth in our Scottish produce, we knew we had to do more,” said director Barbara Henderson. “Our new Taste of Scotland Food Guide is so much more than a product guide. We have spent months collating all the information required in order to provide our customers with an insight into the locally sourced supply chain.
“And, every supplier not only showcases the range of their Scottish products, but also can share how they are working to further their sustainability credentials, such as installing solar panels, using waste food or by-products to make new, innovative products.”
The guide also details Lomond’s social responsibility and commitment to improving its impact on the environment. This includes moving the commercial fleet to hybrid delivery vehicles with thinner insulation, increased carrying capacity and no reliance on red diesel. All company cars are also now electric. These changes alone have resulted in a reduction of 71.3 tonnes of CO2.
