The deal includes handmade crispy rolls, soft morning rolls and brown morning rolls, as well as soda scones and well-fired rolls.

The Glasgow-based, fourth-generation bakery was established in 1936 by Dugald McGhee at the original bakehouse in the city’s Maryhill area, and it now has more than 300 staff.

Asda deal to bring in the dough for McGhee’s Family Bakery

“Our crispy morning rolls are a traditional handmade roll that is based on a sourdough recipe – which makes them very unique in flavour and texture. We are known as a supplier of the Glasgow favourite “crispy roll”, and in fact, all our rolls have become increasingly popular across Scotland.”

Heather Turnbull, Asda’s regional buying manager for Scotland, also commented: “It’s brilliant to add more McGhee’s products to our shelves – our customers love to see local suppliers in store. We are always on the lookout for new and delicious products, and we think our shoppers will enjoy this selection of new bread rolls from the McGhee’s range.”

“Bread rolls are a firm favourite in Scotland and it’s great to be able to offer these products from a family-owned bakery.”
