LDC Group

Discover the wealth of brands

Luiten Food


Lambert Dodard Chancereul (LDC) was founded in the 1950s in Sable, with one poultry slaughterhouse. Today, LDC is the market leader in France and a major player in the European poultry market.

LDC is active in many regions of France, with many slaughterhouses, often specialising in one or a few products.

They now have over 90 locations across Europe. Most locations are in France, though, being the country specialising in poultry based dishes.

Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe purchases a large part of its speciality poultry from LDC Group, which offers a comprehensive selection. We maintain short lines of communication with the companies and locations themselves. This way, we are able to trade and make agreements with each other quickly and effectively, to ultimately serve our customers as best as we can.

Additionally, Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe and LDC together regularly visit the slaughterhouses, but also the feed companies, feed mills and, above all, the farms that keep the animals. We are very open and transparent about this, both to and for our customers.
