Whilst Lance Forman has run his family business for over 20 years, prior to that he was appointed as Special Adviser to the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, gaining his political nous in his university days becoming President of the famed Cambridge Union. Forman's business became notorious in the run up to the London 2012 Olympics as their smokehouse was located on what became the running track of the Olympic stadium. Lance challenged the government and indeed becamethe unofficial voice of all businesses which were being forcibly evicted. In recent months Forman's has received British Government approval to have "London Cure" Smoked Salmon for PGI Status which puts it in the same standing as Champagne Parma Ham and Stilton. Mayor of London Boris Johnson, a huge fan and supporter of Forman's describes Forman's as 'not just a smokehouse, but a salmon theme park!"
