Mike started The British Butcher Shop as he and his Foodie friends could not find the quality of meat that they wanted in the UAE.
So using his UK contacts Mike set out to find the best meat at the best prices. Mike sources the product by visiting the farms himself to ensure standards are met.
All the Pork on offer are from British Farms in Suffolk and are from pigs reared outdoors. These farms are Red Tractor & RSPCA approved and all of the Pork is Antibiotic Free.
The British Butcher Shop also has a Rare Breed range of pork called Berkshire Heritage. This is from crossing Berkshire Black and Duroc pigs. The Duroc breed gives the pork fine slivers of marbling through the meat and the Berkshire Black gives the pork that fantastic flavour.
At The British Butcher Shop, they look after the food from the farm to the fork. They arrange the transportation from their suppliers in the UK to Dubai…yes pigs really do fly. Plus all of the butchery is carried out by our British Master Butcher Mike Barker. From cutting the steaks & chops to making the sausages & burgers.
The British Butcher Shop then delivers direct to the customer using their own refrigerated branded vehicles together with their own trained drivers.
As Mike says:
“We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to eat meat that has been ethically reared. Our meat will always taste the way that it should; we choose the best meat from British farms, free from growth hormones, antibiotics & cruelty.”
“We don’t sell mass produced sausages and burgers, we make our own from scratch, everyday, using 100% British pork shoulder and belly meat as this gives the best taste & texture. We never use undisclosed meat trim or frozen/defrosted pork.”
By keeping it old school when it comes to packaging, The British Butcher Shop also ends up being kinder to the environment. "We are aiming to be as plastic and polystyrene free as we can be when it comes to our footprint in Dubai".
