The London Hop Exchange

We have moved!

Our new London office is located at The London Hop Exchange, situated in the hustle and bustle of London Bridge, next to the famous Borough Market.


The decision to move gives clients and our team an easily accessible location in the heart of London. The FEBC team in London is responsible for the Management and Procurement for the OS&E side of business.


We’re looking forward to your visit in the coming months.

A little history on this magnificent building;
The purpose of the Hop Exchange was to provide a single market centre for dealers in hops. A glass roof allowed business on the trading floor of the Great Hall to be conducted under natural light.


There are many similar outcry floor exchanges across London such as coal, metal and stock exchanges, but wartime bombing fires; redevelopment and modernization has left the Hop Exchange the only one still standing.


A fire in 1920 lead to the top two floors being removed and the Hop Exchange was then converted into offices
