Brown Paper Bags Glasgow

When it comes to owning a truly successful catering business, it’s the small details that make for a better service. There are probably some aspects that people just starting out haven’t even considered. Most places initially focus on the food and yes, that’s probably the best place to start. However, moving on you need to think about other details that will keep your clients coming back again and again. Here at Morrisons Food Services, we think of the smaller elements so that you don’t have to. We sell brown paper bags in Glasgow so that takeaways and restaurants can offer their clients a more eco-friendly way of transporting their food home.

According to the Glasgow Live website, Glasgow has more fast food joints per head than any other place in Scotland. Apparently, we have 89 takeaways per 100,000 people, if data taken in 2016 is to be believed. This is both good and bad news. Good because it means you’re entering a lucrative market in which there is still a consistent demand. Bad because there are clearly a ton of takeaways and restaurants spread throughout Glasgow, all of which your business will be competing against. So, you need to do everything you can to get those clients in. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need spend thousands of pounds on marketing if you’re just starting. You should walk before you can run. Simple changes can make a big difference; all you need to do is know your market.

You may have noticed an increase in natural disasters and strange seasonal weather. It’s a global concern. One of the biggest threats to the planet is climate change. According to NASA, there is a 95 percent probability that the current warming trend is due to human activity. It’s hard to ignore the evidence, but there are some that are making a valiant effort anyway. But wait, you may be thinking to yourself, isn’t this supposed to be a blog on the fantastic brown paper bags that Morrisons Food Services sell in Glasgow? Don’t worry, you’re still on the right post. The point is, that climate change is something we are confronted with every day. The news and social media have ensured that we are aware and suitably terrified. So, people are looking to do their part to help the climate. How can you easily do your part to help the environment and make your clients feel like they’re doing theirs? Brown paper bags.

There has definitely been a paradigm shift in how consumers view businesses in relation to climate change. If you’re doing your bit for the environment and demonstrate this to your clients, it’s definitely going to be more of a selling point. A brown paper bag in Glasgow is a sign that your business is socially responsible. This can mean that consumers will view you with more trust. It’s undeniable, after all, that paper bags are the much more ‘eco-friendly’ option. Plastic takes 10 – 1000 years to decompose and will possibly be left to float in oceans and murder cute sea creatures. No one wants that.

A brown paper bag in Glasgow isn’t just a statement about the environment however, it’s also a fashion statement. Apparently, these things are in fashion. Brown paper bags being used as packaging is seen to be ‘classy’ according to a number of magazines. This may be because Millennials are more conscious of the environment, or maybe it’s due to the sudden resurgence of popularity in retro items. Either way, by making the switch to paper bags, you’re making a statement that your clients will probably appreciate.

Red Salt Glasgow

If you go into any Chinese takeaway, you will notice that salt and chilli variations are popping up all over the menus. Salt and chilli chips, salt and chilli chicken, and even salt and chilli pizza crunch. It’s a craze that doesn’t seem to be slowing down and is, in fact, spreading to other types of takeaway stores. This is because consumers are getting bored of the traditional salty flavours that takeaways offer. The British public is craving more exotic and exciting flavours, and it would be silly not to attempt to capitalise on this trend. Morrisons Food Services sell seasoned salt products, like Red Salt, in Glasgow to smart business owners who want to expand the horizons of what flavours their food can excite their customers with.

Seasoned salt is a blend of table salt, spices, herbs and other flavourings. It’s often used on chips, pizza and chicken to make the flavours a little more exciting and different from the norm. Red Salt is a type of seasoned salt that adds a special spice flavour to give your food that extra punch. Red Salt is known to taste similar to the Nando’s peri-peri salt. Being that every single Nando’s in Glasgow is always chock-a-block full of people, it only makes sense that red salt in Glasgow’s takeaways would also be a highly popular item. At Morrisons Food Services we offer American Red Salt and BBQ Red Salt, two variations so that you have two new unique products to offer to your clientele.

However, Morrisons Food Services don’t just stock Red Salt for Glasgow takeaways, but a number of other salt seasoning products are on offer as well. This means that you can mix and match the products we deliver and create your own unique menu that will leave customers wanting more. No matter if you’re looking for a more peppery taste or a more spicy tang, we have a range of products that will perfectly suit the food that you serve to your customers.

Red salt and products that are similar, truly are the next big thing in the restaurant business. It’s a craze that seems to be rapidly picking up steam, and it would be a shame to not take advantage of this. If you’re a restaurant or takeaway owner who is looking to capitalise on the latest trend, we supply red salt in Glasgow and in other areas in Scotland. The products that Morrisons Food Services deliver are all tried and tested by our fantastic clients and they agree that they are to a superb quality.quality.

Coconut Oil Paisley


If you’re a chip shop or takeaway owner, you’ve probably accepted that your food isn’t the healthiest. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either, as no one really goes out to a fast-food restaurant for a salad. However, with a number of regulations and taxes being introduced in an attempt to coerce the public into thinking about healthy eating, it is a smart business choice to consider less unhealthy options. We offer alternatives like coconut oil so that Paisley takeaways and restaurants can deliver their customers a more healthy alternative to the traditional takeaway offerings.

There is debate among nutritionists regarding just how healthy Coconut Oil really is. Coconut Oil is well known to contain a number of healthy fatty acids that are crucial in order to be able to absorb vitamins A, D, E and K. It’s also been suggested that it can help kill harmful bacteria. It is, however, a source of saturated fat and this is what has nutritionists divided. While it used to be the villain of the diet world, saturated fats are now generally regarded as something that is needed for a balanced diet, but in moderation. Coconut Oil’s health benefits are not written off due to the fact it is a saturated fat, it is still a lot healthier for you than the traditional offerings.

However, it’s usefulness isn’t just limited to potential health benefits. It acts as a very stable cooking oil, and this is important if you’re looking to deep fry menu items. There have been multiple studies that show that it’s quality doesn’t deteriorate when been fried at high temperatures. What makes Coconut Oil a particularly good ingredient for catering businesses is its shelf life, especially in comparison to other fats available. It is solid when kept at room temperature, so it can be used in baking as well as frying, and works as a great alternative to butter in recipes.

We provide a delivery service that will allow you to receive this product, and many more,  for a very fair price. Utilising only the most reliable of couriers, we can get your products to you in as little as two working days. So if you’re looking for high-quality, yet affordable, coconut oil for your Paisley takeaway or catering business, you won’t find a better service than from Morrison’s Food Services.

Gluten Free Batter Mix Glasgow

When buying products for your catering business, it is important to keep in mind current trends that are making a difference in the appetites of consumers. On the 6th of April 2018, the “Soft Drinks Industry Levy” came into effect and changed how both businesses and consumers purchased products. However, even before that, the popularity of Gluten free products have been on the rise and has consequently led to a demand for restaurants, cafes and takeaways to stock such items. We here at Morrisons Food Services aim to help businesses meet this demand, and stock gluten free batter mix in Glasgow for takeaways who are looking to capitalise on this latest food craze.

A smooth and creamy batter perfect for coating fish and chicken, the Middleton’s Gluten Free Batter Mix means that coeliacs don’t have to have a sub-standard chippy or restaurant experience. Used by a number of top-quality establishments throughout the UK, this gluten free batter mixture doesn’t sacrifice on taste, which is a genuine worry when it comes to serving products that cater to those with specific dietary requirements. It is the perfect substitute for the ‘real’ thing, and is guaranteed to please your customers, particularly those who suffer from coeliac disease.

Coeliac disease is an increasingly common autoimmune condition in which an inflammation of the small intestine makes it so that some nutrients are unable to be absorbed. More common in women than in men, the NHS estimate that one in one hundred people have the disease, and this is likely an underestimate as it can be mistaken for milder digestive chronic illnesses such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is often mistaken for as an intolerance to gluten, and this is not the case. It is a lot more serious than that and can lead to long-term complications if gluten is continually consumed. Being that this then makes it that a fairly substantial portion of the country cannot eat gluten, it only makes sense that businesses adapt some of their practice so as to be able to serve a wider selection of customers.

The gluten free batter mix we provide in Glasgow, is just one of the many gluten free products that Morrisons Food Services can provide. We are a family run business that have been supplying to the catering industry in Scotland for over 48 years. We are well established for supplying fish and chip shops throughout the UK, but we are continuing to strive to adapt to the ever changing needs of businesses. We get new products, like our gluten free range, not only so that we can keep our reputation as one of Scotland’s biggest catering supply wholesalers, but so that Scottish companies can benefit.

For any queries you may have about our gluten free batter mix for Glasgow takeaways and beyond, our team will be happy to help. Please feel free to get in contact with us and we’ll do our absolute best to give you the answers you require.

Beef Dripping Edinburgh

From Harry Potter to Buckingham Palace, the UK has a number of distinguished products and establishments that make it a trap for tourists. People from around the globe flock to the small nation to see all that it has to offer. Due to their high reputation and sense of tradition, a fish and chip shop is something that tourists look forward to encountering and that need is met with hundreds of chippies being available to choose from. Edinburgh, in particular, contains a number of excellent chip shops, so it’s important to choose the best products for your store so as you stand-out. Morrisons Food Services are well known for delivering top-quality oils and fats, and we offer our customers the best beef dripping in Edinburgh so that your business can stand out in a heavily saturated, yet potentially lucrative, market.

Beef dripping was once a staple of the British kitchen. Once spread across toast, or utilised to produce the perfect roast potatoes, the popularity of this British icon did suffer when nutritionists turned saturated fats into the villain of the health world. However, modern science has helped turn the tide for this once commonly enjoyed ingredient. The focus for nutritionists is now turning back to carbs and sugar, so beef dripping has had a recent resurgence.

It’s easy to see why. If you go on to any social media platform and search for ‘beef dripping,’ you will be inundated with images of succulent sauces and chips that look so crisp that you can almost hear the crackle through your screen. It is highly recommended from people you know you can trust, with executive chef Richard Turner stating to the Independent newspaper that, “…It’s the missing ingredient for truly great fish and chips.” With such a ringing endorsement, it would be silly not to stock some to turn your establishment from a good fish and chips shop, to a great one.

At Morrisons Food Services we stock a number of great brands of beef dripping for Edinburgh chip shops to make the most of. Fribel R&D Beef Dripping, M-Red R&D Beef Dripping and Superior R&D Beef Dripping are just a few of our selection of our fantastic products that can help elevate the quality of your store. This will allow you to capitalise not only on the many tourists to Edinburgh, but also the locals who know the difference between an okay chippy and a perfect one.

So if you’re wanting to improve your establishment and are interested in one of our exceptional products please feel free to get in contact with us. We deliver our delectable beef dripping throughout Edinburgh and can’t wait to help stock your business with the best products that the UK has to offer.
