Who we are

Established in the 1970’s from a small group of local butchers in North London, we have grown to become the leading Catering Butcher in the UK. We’ve invested continually as we’ve evolved to ensure our infrastructure is always leading edge and we believe we have unrivalled, state of the art production processes and facilities.
Our customers operate in challenging marketplaces, so we continually develop and innovate to help ensure they stay ahead of the game.
