Brian Etherington Meat Company is proud to have been supplying Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly with high quality meat since 1954.
Today we continue to supply the highest quality meat from locally reared and rare breed animals. We provide a wholesale and a retail service, delivering our products with excellent customer service.
Robert William Etherington began his butchery business in 1954 in Crofthandy, near St Day. On retirement he handed it on to his son Brian and in 2007 Brian handed it on to his own son, Mark.
Mark worked for his father during the school holidays from the age of seven and once he left school, he joined the family firm full time, working his way from the butchery floor up.
In 1992 the family business formed a company with Jack & Denise Pascoe as new directors.
Today Etherington’s employs more than 50 local people and supplies individual outlets across the South West including some of Cornwall’s most prestigious restaurants who have stayed loyal to the company for many years.
In 2012 the company diversified to include an award-winning Farm Shop, Bakery and Cornwall’s first butchery academy.
The guiding principle of the company is, and always will be, to produce high quality meat from locally reared and rare breed animals.
