SUP­PORT NA­TIONAL BUTCH­ERS’ WEEK

Country Living (UK) - - A Month in the Country -

Like green­gro­cers and bak­eries, butch­ers have been a main­stay on the Bri­tish high street for hun­dreds of years. Be­tween the 1990s and mid-2000s, their fu­ture looked un­cer­tain, with the num­ber of shops de­clin­ing by 60 per cent*, but things have be­gun to look up as peo­ple place more im­por­tance on the prove­nance of meat. In fact, 97 per cent of cus­tomers sur­veyed said they would rather buy meat from a lo­cal, trusted source*. the ninth an­nual na­tional butch­ers’ week, from 13-19 March, aims to cel­e­brate the choice, ser­vice and con­ve­nience they of­fer.
