Butcher named meat buyer of the year

A Yorkshire butcher is celebrating after being named Meat Buyer of the Year at the Pig & Poultry Marketing Awards in London last week.

Brindon Addy impressed judges with his sound understanding of meat quality and taste and his commitment to his supply base.

He took the award, which was sponsored by Meat Trades Journal, ahead of strong competition from other butchers, supermarket buyers and leading foodservice operators.

Other winners on the day included sausage supplier Debbie & Andrews who took the award for innovation.

“We’re delighted to win this award and it’s a real justification for our constant quest to be new and fresh,” says Andrew Keeble. “Our sausage fans demand the best and now we are available nationwide, more and more sausage lovers can enjoy our fantastic food.”
