Studies of strangeness and quarkonia production in the forward region provide important input to the understanding of QCD models in a kinematic range where they have large uncertainties. The LHCb experiment has collected a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 3 fb −1 in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 7 and 8 TeV, as well as smaller samples recorded with other LHC operating modes. The latest studies of the production of kaons, Λ baryons, and quarkonia states are presented.
