SMALL BOUTIQE BUTCHERY IN NELSON/TASMAN REGION.
After 20yrs within the meat industry in New Zealand, Australia, France and the UK within the export and retail industry. I returned back to the retail side of the industry and noticed that peoples eating habits had changed and that they could no longer get what they desired or what their body could consume as the old school butchery days had long gone and everything is now mass produced. Sure you can go to you local supermarket or modern day butcher shop and ask for a steak or a chop but can they provide you with a real sausage that has been made on site and tell you what the ingredients are, are they gluten free and preservative free have they got bread crumbs or fillers in them ?
This is where I come in, After working with people with these needs and wants I have come up with some products that cater for a wide variety of people and they are pretty tasty too, not bland and tasteless like you would expect from not having any flour/gluten or preservatives in them.
