Laxdale Foodservice Ltd is a 3rd generation family business, based in the heart of Scotland. We’ve been supplying fresh, frozen and ambient food produce to the catering trade since 1964. Our independent, family-run business is trusted by caterers across Scotland to deliver modern quality, value and convenience - with old-fashioned personal service and customer care.
Located on the family farm near Stirling, we provide deliveries throughout Scotland and use our own refrigerated vans and drivers so you can rely on your produce to be delivered promptly, personally and in perfect condition. With our vast experience we know what chefs and caterers want from a foodservice provider - someone you can trust to provide the products you need, at competitive prices, with a completely reliable delivery service.
That’s what you get with Laxdale. And you’ll be pleased to know you’re in good company – for 50 years we’ve been supplying quality food products to hundreds of hotels, restaurants and caterers across Scotland.
Our range of the best branded and non-branded fresh, frozen and ambient food products is constantly updated to reflect changing customer tastes and demands.
Not only that, we also have our own on-farm butchery staffed by skilled and experienced butchers who prepare meat to order. We can supply you and your customers with quality cuts and manufactured meat products that can be tailored to your exact requirements - including unique burger and sausage recipes!
