McGhee's are ‘Mixing it up’!

 

At McGhee's we are continually adding and modernising our machinery so we can deliver the best products in the shortest amount of time to our customers.

A considerable investment saw us recently acquire two Starmix PL140N VEREA machines with variable speed technology. These state-of-the-art machines come with integrated timers and are designed with the food industry in mind.

Technology is moving a brake-neck speeds and the food industry worldwide is no different. Our Newtech roboSONIC-I robotic food handling slicer is designed to meet the demands of multiple product variants and portioning programs, and is particularly well suited to the bakery industry.

See the Newtech roboSONIC-I in action in this short video.

  • High accuracy and repeatability with Mitsubishi 6-axis robot
  • Fast and accurate portioning with through conveyor

Scotland's Three Leading Bakers

 

Stuart, Iain and Gordon McGhee the directors of the family owned business McGhee's Bakery are proud to be voted the Scottish Baker of the Year 2015/2016 by Mich Turner MBE at a glittering ceremony hosted by Scottish Bakers, the association that supports and promotes the interests of Scottish Bakers across the country. McGhee's were also crowned the Wholesale Bakers of the Year, recognised on the night as Best in Scotland for its Morning Roll and the business received a Special Bronze award for its potato scone.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognised as Scotland's best baker” said Managing Director Gordon McGhee. “The company is one of the leading wholesale bakers in Scotland and we are proud to be a long established family concern, we take our business very seriously. We use traditional methods and craftsmen's skills and the brand is steeped in valuable heritage. But we could not have come this far in the competition without our dedicated and skilled team and without the votes of all of our customers, Thank you.”

Pancake day, 17th February, Make sure it's McGhee's

Children often have McGhee's Scotch Pancakes (out of a packet) when they get home from school. And the thing - for those of you who don't know about Scotch pancakes - is that they are not eaten like pancakes - hot with syrup and a knife and fork - but like toast, spread with butter and jam. Remember them being on the cold side of lukewarm, but I think warm, though not so hot as to burn your fingers, is what you're aiming for. Give yourself a treat. Serve McGhee's Scotch Pancakes for breakfast, lunch, tea, or dinner.

Looking forward to 2015!

 

 

Looking forward to 2015!

 

After winning 3 awards in 2014 we're preparing to do better in 2015. Our ‘Morning Roll’ is always in with a chance but this is ably supported by a vast range of products. How many products do we bake on a daily basis? See our product pages to be amazed.

The Scottish Baker of the Year Awards was devised by Scottish Bakers to raise awareness of the bakery industry in Scotland. With baking enjoying resurgence in our kitchens, on our tv screens and on our book shelves, the Association believed it was time to recognise the skills and expertise of the men and women across Scotland who bake for a living. Scottish Bakers asked customers across Scotland to vote for their favourite bakery items in the following categories: morning roll, scone, small cake, savoury, biscuit, bread and new category, best products baked using California raisins scoring each on appearance, freshness, taste and value for money.

The top products in each category were baked and delivered to Dunfermline for judging by a panel of independent experts. The judges had one day only to look at the best baked items in the country in order to decide the regional and national winners.

So lookout for the voting forms and make sure you vote for McGhee's — Scotland's Family Bakers!
