It began in 1850. Two young French bakers fell in love, married, and began creating exquisite biscuits together, which they proudly imprinted with their two initials, LU. Their passion for fine ingredients and distinctive, original biscuits inspires every LU we bake today. Art of LU
Beginning in the 1880s, justly proud of their beautiful biscuits, the bakers of LU had the vision to begin commissioning the best artists of the day, to paint a series of LU advertising posters. These original works are now prized collector's art; shown in terms of the famous Le Petit Ecolier, ("Little Schoolboy"), created by renowned illustrator Firmin Bouisset: a portrait of his own son eating a LU Petit Beurre. Over the next hundred years, the artistry of LU biscuits inspired many artists to create works of their own. In the 1980s, Firmin's vision was molded in chocolate, to create LU's most beloved biscuit variety, Le Petit Écolier. Portfolio of Brands: Internationally

Incorporated in 1984, the success story of LU in Pakistan began with the initiative of Hasan Ali Khan (the founder of Continental Biscuits), who signed a joint venture agreement with Generale Biscuits, the global manufacturers of the LU range, which was subsequently acquired by the Danone Group. Expansive investments were made including the import of technology and professional expertise from abroad. The first undertaking was to set up a factory and establish distribution centers in the country with the ultimate objective of commencing operations and marketing our products in Pakistan. CBL thus started its' operations in the country since September 1986 with an initial strength of 200 employees.
The company first introduced its' innovative brands - TUC, Prince and Candi which proved to be an instant success. With global merger of Generale Biscuit and the Danone Group, a more comprehensive range of products and technical know-how became available to CBL.
