We have a new award on our counter! Best Butcher in London – Slow food London Awards 2015. We were delighted to be presented with the new award certificate today from Shane Holland who is Executive Chairman of Slow Food in the UK. We are especially proud as this is the second year running we have received this accolade.
“Slow Food London is delighted to see Morley Butchers recognised as Best Butcher in London – Award Winner for 2015. Even more so as it is for for the second year running which is a commendable achievement . They have been trading over 120 years and it’s the sort of butchers that we all would wish find on our high street, with a range of quality meat, poultry and game, as well as dry-cured gammon made on the premises from free range Blythburgh Pork. They are real cheerleaders for quality and provenance but still an affordable local butcher, we wish them every continued success. ” Shane Holland – Executive Chairman Slow Food in the UK
We are keen to be involved with Slow Food London as this is the only awards scheme which recognises retailers that put quality food sourcing at the heart of their business. There is no short list to choose from which makes the awards a true consumer award for quality food.
The awards which are now in their third year had an open nomination period between August and October this year. During that time over 39,000 votes were cast and over 200 butchers and other meat suppliers were in the running so it was a tough race to get the top spot. (Geographically the voting was open to anyone within the M25 plus Herts, Bucks Essex and Surrey.)
The Best Butcher in London Needs The Best Customers
With no short list it’s all down to our local customers to take the time and vote for us. We really appreciate that effort, support and enthusiasm which has made us winners again this year. A very big thank you to you all.
“We are so pleased and proud 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.” Andrew Beresford – Owner Morley Butchers
