Who we are, where we have grown from and where we are going.
From Local to National
Leonards was formed during the late Eighties in Portsmouth. Having started out producing high-quality sausage mixes for butchers in the local area, when Barry Lelliott purchased the business he saw great potential in the products. The challenge for Barry was to bring the company’s excellent products to the rest of the country. To do this he relocated it to a custom-fitted factory in the beautiful East Sussex countryside. This high-quality factory allowed the business to expand its sales to all areas of the UK. The factory had to be extended several times, more than doubling the size, to keep pace with the growth.
