Last Week, John Mettrick met HRH Princess Anne to receive the Title “Master Butcher” under the Meat Training Council’s accreditation scheme.
John is the first Master Butcher In the North West, and only the 10th to be given the title in the UK.
In awarding John the title, he was praised for his understanding and management of the supply chain.
Given the recent stories in the news about the inadequacies of the supply chains supplying meat to some of the UK’s largest Supermarkets, it is comforting to know that this close management of the supply chain means that when you buy meat from John, you can be sure that:
- Every Stage of the supply chain (usually only 2 or 3) will be selected and checked by Master Butcher, John Mettrick
- All Beef, Lamb, Pork, Chicken & Turkey sold by JW Mettrick & Son are sourced direct from Local UK Farms
- All meat products are processed in local facilities owned and managed by JW Mettricks
- All products are guaranteed personaly by John Mettrick
In other words, you can purchase meat from JW Mettricks (either in the shops or on-line) with 100% confidence. You have John’s word for it!
“In these difficult times for the meat industry, I am delighted that the difference between local butchers & supermarkets is being recognised” Explained John.
John was presented with the award at the Institute of Meat’s Butchers Hall in the City of London by H.R.H. Princess Royal.
