It all started in 1970, in the small Lancashire town of Broughton where Mrs Latham would make cakes and desserts for her sister’s hotel in Clayton-le-Woods, Chorley. Using only the very best ingredients, it’s no surprise that word quickly spread of Mrs Latham’s talents, and she was soon supplying several businesses across Lancashire with high quality, indulgent, cakes, desserts, and biscuits.
Over 50 years on and Lathams still to this day use some of the same age-old recipes. Producing both sweet and savoury products made using artisan methods along with some exciting new desserts embracing new techniques, all using ingredients sourced within Lancashire.
Today they supply an array of local and national restaurants and hotels as well as branching out into home deliveries during the covid pandemic.
Jon Barton took over where the Latham’s left off two years ago and has been joined by Duncan Poyser and Martin Quinn both of whom have a wealth of experience in Michelin starred restaurants and patisseries as well as both owning their own bakeries. They have a combined 105 years’ experience between them
Renowned for still creating quality, it's no surprise that Lathams are responsible for hand-crafting a selection of our very own Booth’s brand desserts.
Quite simply put, Lathams is the closest you can get to restaurant quality desserts and home baking without having to do the hard work yourself.
