Lamex partners with some of the world’s largest food companies, bringing global procurement and logistical excellence to manufacturers around the world

Lamex Food Group Limited began trading some 50 years ago in 1966. It was initially known as L&M Canned Goods Supplies but in the early 1970’s the company ceased to trade canned goods and subsequently the name changed to L&M Food Group, to be latterly succeeded by the Lamex Food Group name.  By the 1980’s the company had grown considerably and opened offices in USA and Holland and was now operating in poultry, pork, fish, fruit, vegetables and French fries. As a result of its international reputation and strong financials, Norwich Union Insurance Group took a 19% stake in 1991 which they held for 15 years. 

L&M Food Group continued to expand with offices opening in Sweden, Brazil, Thailand, Spain, and Poland, and in the early 2000’s further offices were opened in Ireland, Malvern, Switzerland, Russia and China. Lamex Agrifoods was created in 2011 to streamline the non-protein side of the business, focusing on IQF Fruits, Juices, Purees, Concentrates and Honey.
In 2005 L&M Food Group saw their first ranking in the Sunday Times 250 Mid-Market Private Companies and by 2013, Lamex Food Group had joined the Top Track ranking for the Top 100 private UK companies.

Today Lamex Food Group is a worldwide network with over 55 experienced food traders operating from 18 Lamex offices in 14 countries. 
As global trading becomes more competitive and more complicated, Lamex Food Group has always aimed to continually develop an industry leading service that is highly valued by our customers and suppliers.  Benefiting from substantial financial resources and 50 years’ experience, accompanied by a continual investment in people, Lamex Food Group has become a world leader in multiple products and geographical areas.
