LDHM champions local farming supply partnerships

An Asian meat wholesaler has embarked on a major upgrade to its Blackburn production unit in light of “spiralling” demand for local meat.

Lancashire Direct Halal Meat (LDHM) has announced that an increase in interest for its locally sourced products is cause for investment. A spokesperson from LDHM explained that demand from both the regional hospitality sector, as well as the general public, had risen and therefore gave cause for an upgrade.

Director of the family-run company Shafiq Alam said the business has been around for more than 45 years and was set up by his father. The company moved to its current premises in early 2012 and was Lancashire’s first Asian meat wholesaler, he claimed.

Alam explained: “We are very keen to buy from Lancashire and Yorkshire farmers wherever possible in support of the regional agricultural economy.
“The company has a very strong customer base, with an extremely close and direct working relationship, which has been important in order for us to understand and meet customer requirements. We continue to enjoy this position in our day-to-day operations and will continue this success in the future.”
