National Butchers Week : Celebrating Pip Smiths Butchers
The National Butchers’ Week highlights the great work being done by butchers from around the UK that sets them apart from the competition. It also focuses on the fantastic innovation that takes place within butchers’ shops across the land.
The National Butchers’ Week is presented by William Reed Business Media, the company behind the acclaimed World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, The International Wine Challenge and the World Steak Challenge.
So, lets celebrate our town centre family run butchers… Smiths Butchers on Market Street.
We are lucky to house an award winning butchers shop. Smiths Butchers was a finalist in The Great British Butcher Awards 2019 making them “stars” of the retail butchery industry. The awards are designed to recognise and celebrate innovation and quality in retail butchers. They won a gold award for its Ashdale 42 Day Dry Age Sirloin in the Best British Beef Steak category at the awards ceremony in Harrowgate on May 19. They also came amongst the top three nationally in the Young Sausage Maker, and Dry Cured Bacon categories for its Smoked Pork & Maple Sausage Double Smoked Treacle Streaky bacon respectively.
Manager of Smiths, Frank Crockford, said they feel very pleased. It’s an honour and now Eastleigh has been put on the meat map.
Director, Pip Smith, said: “We would like to think were are good but to have it reaffirmed makes all the difference, it can only be good for us.”
From the awards they were then invited to participate in The World Steak Challenge.
Les Smith has over 45 years experience in the butchery trade, with over 80 national and international awards in the past 15 years.
