Leathams launch new brand and showcase unrivalled expertise
13th February 2012
We celebrated the launch of our new brand and website with a sparkling ‘Food Spectacular’ held at the London Film Museum.
The event, attended by over 150 of Leathams’ customers, journalists and bloggers, featured a speech by Mark Leatham who founded the company with his brother Oliver back in 1980 and showcased just some of the thousands of foods Leathams have become famous for.
Guests were treated to a feast of tasty treats dreamed up by Leathams’ Head of Food, Alessandro Cristiano, and development chef, Andy Howe. These included:
Tuna on Ice: Frozen cured cucumber topped with seared tuna and spiced black rice vinegar spaghetti and wasabi granita.
Cod in Smoke: Crispy polenta with quinoa salad, topped with apple smoked black cod, served in smoke!
Bresaola air breads: air bread sticks filled with aged cheddar and wrapped in smoked salt and bresola
From Parma with Passion: Passionfruit marshmallow wrapped in crispy Parma ham.
Fire & Ice: Roquito chilli pepper ice cream.
Commenting on the Food Spectacular, Leathams Director of Sales and Marketing, Clive Moxham, said: “For over 30 years, Leathams has offered a dynamic range of innovative, inspirational foods to professional chefs, hoteliers, contract caterers, high street pizza and sandwich bar chains, wholesalers and multiple grocery retailers.
“We’re passionate about the food we supply.
We’re about supplying delicious, high quality speciality foods to people who care about what they cook, serve and eat.
“As a rapidly growing business with a projected turnover of £62 million for 2011/12, we’re committed to investing in our company, our brands, the support to our customers and our people to ensure we remain the innovators in food.
Our vision of “innovative, quality food, with market-leading brands all supported by excellent service” is our guiding mantra and the party reinforced this to the food industry as a whole. I have 4 “sacred cows” that this business will always hold true to, Quality, Innovation, Our Brands and Service and on listening to our customers and journalists last night these were clearly understood.
“Our new look and feel reflects the way in which we do business: fresh, direct, honest and professional. The new website is a key hub for customers to find out more about how we work, how we can inspire them with on-trend innovations and the friendly, knowledgeable people who are here to help bring quality and speciality food to life. We also have new brochures and all the marketing materials that will help our customers sell more and we look forward to working ever more closely with them as they have continued to support our business over the last 30 years”
