Believe it or not, we’re one of our own largest producers! Many of our fresh meat and poultry products are prepared at Booths headquarters in Preston, from our succulent sausages to our flavoursome, ready-for-the-oven chicken kievs.
Complemented by our in store colleagues, who can recommend the right cuts for your recipe and prepare it freshly for you. Whether it’s a nicely trimmed steak; a portion of our seasonal ready to cook dishes such as minted lamb henry or duck breast in plum sauce, or just a sausage or two for supper.
There is a sign hanging on the wall at the Booths butchery in Preston that reads,
If you wouldn’t buy it, don’t expect our customers to buy it.
For Nigel Cokell, Booths Head of Manufacturing, that says it all. He’s worked at Booths for over 17 years and takes those words seriously.
We’ve got a very nice, tight team who absolutely understand that the customer is at the heart of everything we do. It’s massively important that we get it right. We cut and pack all our own meat. We make all our own sausages and beef burgers.
