Well established with a 100 year trading history the vendor bought the business back in 2002 and specialises in the supply of all meat and poultry products. The produce is prepared for retail and catering, prepared to the catering clients own requirements, fresh or frozen, vacuum packed, labelled on a daily basis, ensuring freshness and excellent quality. This has placed the business firmly in the local market and enhanced its enviable reputation amongst the general public customers and its many accounts that include restaurants, schools, hotels and pubs.

The range of produce is prepared by experienced and skilled butchers using the traditional hands-on methods of hanging, butchering and preparing meat.

Not surprisingly this business is a firm favourite with its loyal customer base, drawing customers from several miles around. The business is profitable and has grown consistently over the years.
There is a small team of highly experienced staff who maintain a friendly and helpful service to their customers as would be expected from their local butchers.

The business uses Sage for accounts and payroll and a bespoke invoicing system.
