Welcome to Summer! I hope all our customers have enjoyed the pretty good start to the season weather wise and that this continues into the main season.
Here at Williamson’s we’ve been busy putting together a special 24 page summer promotional catalogue that covers July and August. It’s out now and really captures the widest range of products possible.
With around half our business coming from fresh produce, we have included a centre page spread on fruit and vegetables as well as a range of traditional, foraged, exotic and micro herbs that we find are generating increased interest. During July and August we have introduced a special fruit or vegetable deal every week that provides exceptional value so I hope you manage to take advantage of these which run from Monday to Sunday every week.
The brochure also features a new ‘Ridge Range’ of Mackies Crisps that contain natural seasonings and offer customers a distinctive texture and taste. A ‘Chef’s Jacket’ promotion from Gourmet Classic is included and a wider selection of Rich Sauces products than ever before are featured. An extensive listing of premium soft drinks are listed as well as quality wines, craft beers and brands like Kellogg’s cereals and Fruitypot. Some special deals on hygiene and essential cleaning products are available at very keen prices too!
Maximising customer satisfaction is at the heart of what we seek to achieve and with this in mind we have invested heavily in the business during early Spring and into Summer with the addition of four brand new vehicles. These are well equipped to deal with the challenges faced by Highland roads including long distances, single tracks and changeable weather.
The new trucks incorporate the latest chilled technology to ensure goods arrive on time and in the best possible condition. With the new Williamson Foodservice branding incorporated, these should make a distinctive addition to the Highland scenery this summer!
We have also improved the user experience on our website recently and you can now access lists of many of our products:
This gives a better idea of the extent of our range and allows customers to submit orders by fax or via a web order form although our Sales Hotline 0345 450 8888 is also available. We add to our 3,000 product lines all the time, so do please take a moment or two to acquaint yourself with these pages as it may help you source better quality products or consolidate your other buying into one single source and potentially make some savings along the way.
We’re still regularly tweeting so please do follow us for the latest produce updates and regular reminders of what’s happening in the food and drink sector. We are also happy to share your stories so tag or mention us in your posts and we will like or retweet.
Myself and Andy Barbour, one of our Field Sales Representatives are still raising funds for the Highland Hospice ‘Everest’ Cycle Challenge that takes place in September. Any donations would be gratefully received for this very worthwhile cause. Finally, Gosia Sowinska is in the spotlight this month, so take a moment or two to find out what she does within the Williamson Group. May I wish all our customers a busy and profitable season.
