With three decades of experience, our team of culinary experts has developed a mouth-watering range of products from the best of Eastern and Western cuisine, ranging from Indian, Italian and Far Eastern to English and South American. All the products are hand prepared and cooked using Laila’s own closely guarded traditional family recipes and always the finest, freshest ingredients.
Laila’s Fine Foods is a dynamic manufacturer of high-quality, hand prepared ready meals. With a passionate and creative family management team and dedicated colleagues, we have the ability to deliver food that has a restaurant prepared taste and quality.
The family business has grown from its humble beginnings in Laila’s own kitchen, back when she persuaded the local delicatessen to purchase her traditional homemade samosas and onion bhajis. Now based in a 43,000 sq ft purpose-built factory in Bispham, we are made up of over 200 people working on more than 250 product ranges. The family ethos, home-prepared style of cooking and close attention to quality is still at the heart of everything we do. The only thing that’s changed is that the cooking pots are bigger!
