Our History

The family history behind the business

The origins of our trusted family business go back as far as 1945. Having returned injured from the battle of Anzio, 20-year-old Tom Brennand signed up as an apprentice butcher at R Lomas in Blackpool.

He spent several years learning the butcher’s trade before becoming the area sales representative for T Lucas & Co.  Looking after customers in Blackpool and throughout the North West inspired Tom to establish Fylde Butchers Supplies, a company that initially focused on ingredients.

The business flourished and Tom’s sons David and Mike were both heavily influenced by their father’s passion for business, hard work and dedication to his trade.  Those values are the cornerstone of our family business to this day.

When David joined the family business, he saw the opportunity to expand and diversify its offer.  And so Innovative Food Ingredients was born.
