The Expo, part of the expansive UK Food & Drink Shows, brought together a diverse spectrum of over 1,200 exhibitors from various sectors including grocery, specialist retail, wholesale, foodservice, and hospitality. The larger UK Food & Drink Show is made up of five trade shows whereby visitors can access multiple events in one, including the: Farm Shop & Deli Show, Food & Drink Expo, The Restaurant Show, National Convenience Show and The Forecourt Show. This provides visitors with the unique opportunity to seek out innovation for their business and source new products.

Our history in the UK&I
LLBG UK&I was recently established in 2019 however, the trusted relationship between our customers and our Panesco brand dates back to 1996, when Synergy Foods Ltd. began its agreement with Panesco, answering a market need for ‘quality continental bakery products, at scale’. Over the next 23 years, Synergy Foods Ltd. successfully developed supply in UK&I foodservice through a network of independent wholesalers. In 2005, LLBG’s new brand acquisition of Panesco built the foundations for the LLBG UK&I business you see today, now operating three core brands, La Lorraine, Panesco and in recent times, Donut Worry Be Happy.
