For the last 20 years Lakeland Computers has been providing stock and retail management solutions specifically designed for the Independent Food Retail sector across the UK and Ireland.
When you consider the number of businesses we are fortunate to look after, we are undeniably the leading provider of solutions into the Farm Shop and Speciality Food arena.
As specialists in this market therefore we are enabled insights into issues which specifically affect food retailers and have tailored an entire suite of applications to deal with food and food management-related problems for businesses of all sizes and users of all abilities.
Lakeland Computers proudly look after many of the countries 'best of breed' businesses and many previous Supreme FARMA Champions use Eureka™ and related modules to support their on-going development.
Aside from Software, our Service and After Sales Support are key parts of our offering and we provide a complete 'hand-holding' service to ensure businesses are guided through the entire process to live day and beyond.
Many of our team have strong, direct, links with the Farm Shop and food sector and we feel this only serves to enhance our understanding of the needs of our customers.
We were awarded a Royal Warrant by HRH The Queen in 2011 for our provision of software management to that household since 2000.
Lakeland Computers are one of the longest standing supporters and key sponsors within FARMA and continue to go to great lengths for the organisation right up to the present day.

When I consider the hundreds of food businesses we have the pleasure of calling customers (friends), some of whom started life in a small shed or barn and combine that with the fact that many of them are family-run, it is really very humbling to think they are putting their trust in us and in our systems for the good of their business and for future generations of their family to come.
This sector has seen some very tough times and continues to come under fire from the supermarkets who will stop at nothing for a slice of the 'retail pie'. We believe FARMA continues to be a guiding hand for existing and 'would-be' independents in the face of stiff competition on this front.
The reinvigorated FARMA brand and desire to bring a genuinely collaborative approach to the organisation is to be welcomed and they continue to receive our full support in this endeavour. We are proud therefore to answer the call to be the main award sponsors in the sector we love so dearly.
