At Braehead Foods, we love to add locally sourced Scottish products to our range, not only to help local businesses and the Scottish economy, but also because we have some amazing businesses producing excellent quality products. This month’s Supplier Spotlight is on one of those companies; The Handmade Shortbread Company based in Hamilton.
It was Janice and Tom Park's success in the restaurant business
that founded The Handmade Shortbread Company in 2011. Excelling at
providing delicious puddings and shortbread to top hotels and
restaurants, the word spread fast, and soon more and more local
hotels ordered the products. Demand rose quickly and the factory
opened in Hamilton, Scotland in 2012.
Janice and Tom developed the shortbread recipe based on a family
secret mix, and their amazing sticky toffee pudding recipe is based
on one from a dear family friend that has been developed and
refined using hand crafted methods.
The Handmade Shortbread Company's in-house team continues to
develop exciting new products - they may be small, but their
products are delicious and of the best quality on the market
These delicious pure butter shortbreads are an individual taste
of heaven. Made to a secret family recipe handed down through the
generations, each handmade biscuit melts in the mouth.
Shortbread comes in a range of sizes, from mini conference
biscuits (also suitable as a complimentary coffee biscuit), to
large individually wrapped biscuits.
The Handmade Shortbread Company not only make the most delicious
shortbread biscuits, but they can take care of the full
personalisation and branding process for you. You can find these
biscuits individually wrapped in top hotels, restaurants, boutique
cafes, coffee shops and even hairdressers, all with your company's
branding and logo. These mouth-watering biscuits are ideal for
popping on the side of a coffee cup to delight your customers!
Handmade with the finest ingredients, they also make Sticky
Toffee Pudding with toffee sauce, and Banana Sponge Pudding with
salted caramel sauce. Your customers will be spoiled for choice!
This range is not only delicious, but also looks great on the
Sticky toffee pudding
The smell of warm toffee is irresistible to most, and that's why
they created the ultimate comforting pudding, delicious with ice
cream or pouring cream.
Banana sponge pudding
Another sweet smelling treat, their Banana Sponge Pudding is
smothered in salted caramel sauce, and sure to please anyone with a
Both top quality products come in individual portions or a
banqueting portion, allowing chef to cut into his or her desired
portion size. Busy chefs love these products because the melt in
the mouth sauce is in a separate container, which can be heated at
the same time as the pudding and poured over to give an authentic
'made in-house' look. The product can be heated straight from the
microwave - meaning no waste for chef. Happy customers and happy
