In the early days of our business we travelled the length and breadth of Scotland with our cakes in the back of the car. Nowadays, because we quickly realised we were better bakers than travelling salespeople, we enjoy partnerships with main distributors.
We have been working with this great Scottish company since 2006. Fife Creamery distribute chilled and frozen products to the catering trade and have been in business since 1957. Based in Fife, the company has a modern fleet of temperature controlled vehicles travelling to all parts of mainland Scotland.
Established over 60 years ago, Bidfood offer an unparalleled range of frozen, chilled and ambient foods to both the catering and retail trades. We are honoured to be associated with this long established company who have state-of-the-art premises on the outskirts of Oban. Scotland's distribution area stretches from Campbelltown in the west of Scotland to Mallaig and the Inner Hebrides. The company has 22 depots nationwide and they have been instrumental in helping us grow our market share south of the border also.
We are proud to have a presence in Ireland through our association with Lynas Foodservice. Since being established nearly 70 years ago Lynas Foodservice has been dedicated to one word, ‘Service’ and at Cobbs we have the same ethos. The company is family run – three generations – with over 450 staff. Lynas’ aim is simple, to serve their customers with the best product and the best service. That vision has seen them evolve into the largest family operated Foodservice Company in Ireland. Lynas Foodservice now has over 5,000 customers and offers over 6,000 products across frozen, chilled, ambient and non-foods on 1 invoice and 1 delivery.
In 1945 Bill McClure began selling Morecambe Bay shrimps from his hand-cart in Kendal. He couldn’t have known then but his values of customer service and choice were laying the foundations for a business which is now one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain; in the hands of his son and grandsons, and today is serving new generations of many of his original customers. We are privileged to be associated with this wonderful family business in Cumbria which has a modern fleet of over 30 vehicles, 120 employees and over 1,200 customers. McClures deliver six days per week and are constantly sourcing new products to give their customers the best possible choice of products.
