Liverpool cooked meat business ceases trading

Lockwoods Liverpool, the Merseyside-based producer of cooked meat products and baked pies has ceased trading.

FDMB North West understands that the whole of its workforce has been made redundant as a result.

The business was founded in 1948 and opened a series of butcher’s shops in and around the city, before expanding into production of its own brand of pork and beef sausages, and then producing a range of cooked meats.
