Farmison & Co secures 60 supply deals in six months
Since launching the trade side of the business in March of this year, British heritage breed butcher Farmison & Co has seen weekly turnover from trade sales increase by more than 500% after securing 60 contracts supplying meat to some leading UK restaurants.
In addition to this, the business expects turnover from trade accounts for the year to hit £1.5 million.
Farmison & Co supplies to Michelin-star restaurant House of Tides, alongside the Tate Modern, Restaurant 34, Bocca di Lupo and Ducksoup, among others.
“We’ve had an incredible start to the trade side of the business and are delighted with the calibre of the restaurants that have chosen to work with us, which is absolute testament to the quality and range of meat we can supply from our network of independent farmers, who work tirelessly to create world -class produce,” commented John Pallagi, founder of Farmison & Co.
Although establishing itself within the foodservice circuit, the heart of Farmison & Co’s business is in online orders, where it delivers the same range to its trade clients, nationwide.
“Choice is key for both our trade and online home cook customers and, alongside an unrivalled range of heritage breeds which include Galloway, Aberdeen Angus, Gloucestershire Old Spots, Dexter, White Park, Swaledale and Herdwick, we also provide exclusive and difficult-to-source products and cuts, such as English Milk Fed Veal, Tomahawk Steak and Jacob’s Ladder, alongside unrivalled lengths of dry-ageing on the bone,” added Pallagi.
“Traceability is also critical. Every single farmer we work with shares our founding principles and ensures that our standards of traditional husbandry – feeding herds natural produce with space to roam and time to grow at their own pace – are always unequivocally met.”
