History

LS Frais was founded back in July 1994. It started out slicing and packaging the products from the Ardennes produced by Larden Salaisons, its affiliate at the time.

In the intervening years, the company has become independent and has realised major growth in terms of its product range and its slicing and packaging offering.

Today LS Frais is ready to face the future with an ambitious programme aimed at securing a benchmark position in slicing and packaging of charcuterie products.
