Don’t Go Bacon My Heart – Promotional Ideas for Food Businesses

Fresh ideas you'll love this Valentine's Month

Are you missing fresh ideas for your promotions this February? With Valentine’s Day in the middle of the month, it comes as an ideal time for every food business to run special promotions, and to offer dishes that will catch hearts of their customers!

At J. Buckland, we’ve spent decades serving all kinds of food during February, including to delis, bakeries, butchers, restaurants, hotels and more. So, we have a pretty great idea of what you can do to make it extra special for your customers this year. Read on for some inspiration for your business below.

Wholesale bacon for wholehearted dishes

Take a butchers at love this February! Our smoking Grumpy Pig Streaky Bacon is so versatile that it can be added to almost any menu at any time of day. For breakfast menus, your customers may enjoy a simple bacon sarnie with a heart of ketchup, or some sweet pancakes with added bacon and syrup. For dinner menus, you may like to offer a juicy burger topped with bacon, or a chicken breast wrapped in a blanket. Supplied fresh and chilled in a 1kg tray, this bacon is ideal for easy grab and use… there’s nothing grumpy about this offer!

Hot & spicy escalope meal for two

Looking to spice things up for your customers this month? Look no further than our Hot & Spicy Escalope! Large and succulent, it truly creates a dish marked with love. Delivered fresh-frozen and in packs of 10, these are ideal for restaurants looking to add a main special dish to their menu. It can be perfect as a romantic meal served with spicy rice, corn-on-the-cob, or spicy wedges. As a lunch option, it can be diced into a fresh garden salad. See the full special offer here.

A cake your customers will love

Who said Valentine’s Day is just about a box of chocolates? On the contrary, February comes as a perfect time for coffee shops offer a piece of delicious piece of cake. We have a bountiful range of cakes available, including our impressive Amaretto Cheese Cake Gateau. The splash of liquor really makes this a deliciously devilish dessert. Fresh-frozen and pre-portioned into 14 pieces, this is also a really romantic bake that’s easy to prepare (…can we say ‘it’s a piece of cake’ here?). See the special offer here.

Deli spread the love

Give your customers a little bit of what they fancy! With our offers on ready-cooked Hams and Liver Sausage Berliner products this month, you can quickly whip up a deli spread of heart-warming delights, ideal served on a platter or with a fresh bread product. We might be a bit bias, but what better way to say ‘honey I’m home!’ than our 100% Honey Roast Ham? We have 100% Plain Ham too. See all special offers here.
