Aubrey Allen receives Royal Warrant

Coventry-based butcher Aubrey Allen has received a Royal Warrant to HM The Queen, it was announced today

The butcher, which was also the winner of Meat Trades Journal’s Butcher Shop of the Year 2012, is now a supplier of meat, poultry and game by royal appointment.

According to managing director Russell Allen, the prestigious achievement is a result of Aubrey Allen supplying the Royal Household at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Sandringham, as well as Her Majesty’s other private residences, since 2007.

As such, the Warrant took effect from 1 January this year and will be in place for five years. Aubrey Allen now joins around 800 other Royal Warrant holders, who provide products to the Royal household.

Allen said: “It is the ultimate honour to be awarded a Royal Warrant and represents the most prestigious stamp of quality and reliability. Being granted the Royal Warrant in the year that marks the 60th anniversary of HM The Queen’s Coronation is particularly special, with the opportunity to be involved in the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace from 11-14 July 2013. We’re absolutely thrilled and delighted to receive this recognition at the start of such a special year, which also marks our 80th birthday celebrations for the business that my grandfather Aubrey Allen founded in 1933.  

“Receiving the Royal Warrant represents a time of celebration for everyone who works across the company and highlights a very special landmark in the history of the company for my father Peter, my sisters Debbie and Lucianne, and myself.”
