Central Leader - - News -

An ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of pro­duce greets cus­tomers upon en­ter­ing the pris­tine premises of one of Auck­land’s largest pri­vately owned butch­ers

With a motto of ‘Fresh is Best’ and a counter span­ning 24 me­tres there is am­ple room to view the top qual­ity meat on dis­play at the Mt Al­bert store.

Owner Su­san Sun says the store spe­cialises in pro­vid­ing meats cut in dif­fer­ent styles for cus­tomers from a di­verse cul­tural mix, with staff trained in pro­vid­ing pro­duce cut to the par­tic­u­lar re­quire­ments of its Kiwi, In­dian, Maori and Asian clients.

For ex­am­ple Malaysian cus­tomers like their pork chops sliced very thin, says Mrs Sun, while oth­ers like their meat to be mar­i­nated in cer­tain ways.

Spe­cial or­ders for cer­tain types and styles of meats can be placed by phone.

The best qual­ity meats are a hall­mark of the store. Beef and lamb is sup­plied by Hellaby meats and sup­plied pork is 100 per­cent New Zealand pro­duced, and all of the cur­ing, sausage­mak­ing and ba­con pro­duc­tion is done in-store.

Com­pet­i­tive prices at whole­sale-type rates are also a fea­ture. Cur­rently shoul­der ba­con is just $1.09 per 100 grams, beef meaty-bone is $2.99 per kilo, beef brisket with bone is $4.99 per kilo, and pork-loin chops are just $9.99 per kilo.

Sausage skins are also sold sep­a­rately so cus- tomers can make their own va­ri­eties at home, and cus­tomers spending over $30 are en­ti­tled to a free knife-sharp­en­ing ser­vice.

Fur­ther cus­tomer ser­vice is pro­vided by the plac­ing of recipe mag­a­zines on the dis­play counter with staff able to pho­to­copy a de­sired page for clients.

The store is lo­cated at shop 2, 955 New North Rd, Mt Al­bert, open seven days, 7.30am-6.30pm Mon­day to Satur­day, 7.30am-6pm Sun­day. Phone 845 6688 for in­for­ma­tion and or­ders.
