Lomond supplies Landmark members and launches sandwich concepts

Landmark Wholesale has launched a range of frozen cakes and traybakes for foodservice operators under the group’s Caterers Kitchen brand.

The supplier is Cake, the Glasgow-based bakery owned by Lomond – The Wholesale Food Co, a group member.

The 15-strong selection includes lemon drizzle, coffee & walnut and chocolate fudge cakes, milk caramel shortcake, puff candy and cherry bakewell (pictured).

“The coffee shop, garden centre and café sector is the fastest growing in foodservice and shows no sign of slowing down, so introducing a range to satisfy demand in this area was an obvious choice,” said Les Mohammed, Landmark foodservice controller.

Meanwhile, Lomond has launched two sandwich concepts – Eat Around the World and Most Wanted – to help caterers produce food-to-go options for their customers.

Eat Around the World includes 14 different sandwich options, including The Aussie (pictured), The Cuban, Mexican Chicken and Posh Bacon and Egg. It was inspired by a trip to New York by Lomond’s managing director Sam Henderson.

Most Wanted is a range of 15 filled baguettes aimed at entry-level retailers and foodservice operators who want to branch out into food-to-go or improve their offering. With an rsp of £2.75, the range features classic combinations as Tuna Mayo, Gammon and Cheddar Ploughmans, Salami and Emmental Cheese and Firecracker Chicken with Rocket.

Both ranges come with crib sheets containing step-by-step guides on how to put the sandwiches together, images of each stage, nutritional data and essential allergen information. “This will equip any modest caterer or entry-level retailer with the quality, presentation and technical back-up to compete with the multiples that are crowding the high streets,” said Henderson.

“Food-to-go is likely to be a major area of growth in the coming years and so we have made this a focus,” he added. “We want to encourage our customers to use the very best ingredients on the market to create food-to-go products that are well presented, healthy and on trend.”
