From when I was a kid I spent endless hours working with my Dad, Keith George at London’s Smithfield Market. I loved it. It was very much in my blood and he taught me everything he knew.

In 2000 he helped me set up Select Butchery, a specialist supplier catering specifically to the top-end restaurant trade. They were only interested in the best and soon realised I’d deliver that for them. Every time.

For 20 years now I’ve kept kitchens happy at Quaglino’s, Hawksmoor, The Ivy, The Wolseley and many more.

The next step for me is to offer the same luxury quality British produce direct to you, the Great British public. Beautifully fresh cuts selected and prepared daily. Pre-order. Click & Collect or pay us a visit. You’ll find we’re friendly, knowledgeable, full of great ideas and not a little funny too!
