Best Butchers in London – Award Winners

Shane Holland Executive Chairman of Slow Food UK visited Morley Butchers in Crouch End to present the 2015 London Best Butchers award. The Slow Food London Awards are a real seal of approval because the entrants and the final winners are all selected by London food shoppers.

Now in their third year these awards were created by Slow Food London to support and highlight the growing number of quality food retailers and producers within London which are the polar opposite of supermarkets .

In their awards statement Slow Food London said “The London Best Butchers award to Morley Butchers recognises excellence in their butchery, time-honed skills, as well as their impressive range of game and quality meat.”

“We are so pleased to have won this award for the second year,running, particularly as it is based on votes from our customers. A huge thank you to them for their support and enthusiasm for our products and what we do in the shop.”

We cure our own Gammon here in Crouch End, North London using the best ingredients that we source from Blythburgh Free Range Pork in Suffolk. Their animals enjoy a very natural lifestyle and diet with very high welfare standards. By starting with the best quality Pork, using a traditional manual process and allowing plenty of time allows us to create a truly exceptional range of Gammon. We also offer our own smoked Gammon for an even richer flavour.

The supplier of our bacon range also sources from Blythburgh Free Range Pork to ensure great texture and taste.
