west coast foods - a wee bit about us
As little as 30 years ago, you could walk down any high street in Britain and buy your food from a variety of local shops. The butcher, the baker, and the greengrocer, all supplied the ingredients needed for the family meal. These weren’t premium items with luxury price tags, they were just good honest food from the traditional rural farms of Britain. Not the idyllic smallholding of a pastoral fantasy but large commercial enterprise that had yet to be touched by the full-blown industrial food revolution. The land was still the land and farming a traditional way of life that provided food for local communities. Meals were made from real ingredients and cookery was a fact of life not a middle class sport.
We won’t go into how it changed or why the rise of processed food ran completely out of control; in one way or another we all understand the story. What we want to tell you is how we intend to make all of that change.
By bringing back the traditional high street butcher, we believe that quality meat and good service should once more be the norm; not the exception and not merely available to a chosen few. These aren’t just empty promises though. Our lovely little butcher’s shop in Prestwick, Ayrshire, has been a sure success for over two years now and we felt the time was right to offer the same standards of quality and service to the growing number that wish to buy meat online. And so our online butchers was born.
For us, it’s all about quality and service. We bring the finest local Scottish meat and prepare it all in-house. Our award winning master butchers, two of which are Scottish champions, butcher all of our meat, by hand, from whole carcasses, using traditional skills passed down through the generations. We are proud of our Scottish roots; food is all about the land so it isn’t surprising that Scotland has some of the finest produce in the world.
In meeting modern needs with traditional values we can offer you the same high standard of service and quality meat that our loyal customers expect from our high street shop, but we guarantee next day delivery if you order by 10am. Temperature controlled packaging ensures that your meat arrives in exactly the same prime condition as when it was packed for delivery.
