Peter Mellors takes Bpex West Midlands award

Mellors Farm Butchers was crowned overall champion in the West Midlands in the 2009/10 Bpex challenge.

Forty-four butchers from the surrounding region entered the event, at The Three Counties Showground in Malvern.

From 241 products put forward, nearly half achieved a gold award, scoring at least 95 out of 100.

Newark-based butcher’s Mellors won with a traditional-style pork pie, and will now go through to a national final, taking place in June at a London venue.

Peter Mellors said: “It is a real boost for the business. I’m excited about the final and the fact that we now have two products entered – I’m keeping my fingers firmly crossed.”

Bpex butchery and product development manager Keith Fisher added: “The standard of products entered was exceptionally high. We hope the awards continue to boost the profile of many businesses and the independent retail butchery trade.”

H Dayus Family Butchers in Worcester won 15 gold awards, a silver and bronze award, in addition to the three category champion titles.

The penultimate event in the 2009/2010 roadshow takes place at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton on 10 March 2010. Downlaod an entry form from part of the Bpex website or call 07503 871179.
