LAMEX has continued to penetrate the IQF fruit and puree market by taking equity stakes in two main processors – Mondi LAMEX in Serbia and Alterra LAMEX in Greece. Supply from these businesses is in excess of 20,000 tonnes per year and sales are handled exclusively by LAMEX.
To this end we have a network of offices all over the world. Lamex’s Fruit and Vegetable Divisions are able to ensure that our philosophy of “Global Expertise, Local Knowledge” is a commercial reality. For example, we are aware of potential crop issues and this allows Lamex and its customers to act on the most up-to-date information.
The Fruit Division’s management team has over 100 years of combined experience in the industry and this expertise has enabled us to become a major supplier to Preserve, Yogurt, Bakery, Desserts and Food Service markets all over the world.
To uphold the highest quality standards we do not rely solely on 3rd party accreditation. Our commercial team visits all of our main supply markets annually and our strong relationships with these suppliers enable us to deliver the best quality fruit from the best packers at competitive prices.
Our broad supply network and specialist expertise have allowed us to become major suppliers to the manufacturing industry.
We pay close attention to crop and market developments, and this has helped us grow the business significantly. With sales in 5 continents we have the know-how to source vegetable products from the best packers in each of our supply origins.
We are a major supplier to the manufacturing industry, and the European freezing industry, who rely on our technical expertise to ensure that their specialised requirements are met in full.
We are able to offer a broad range of products from fully audited and approved factories and we are able to source most vegetables from our approved supply base.
