Randall Parker Foods has its own Master Butcher!

Randall Parker Foods are delighted to be able to announce that one of its long standing employees Ian Winstone has been awarded the prestigious title of “Master Butcher” by the Institute of Meat.  This makes him only 1 of 16 in the UK who can officially be deemed a “Master Butcher” – and we are very proud!

A Master Butcher is defined as “one who is competent and indeed highly skilled in his trade” and Ian had to demonstrate his abilities in all areas including farming, slaughtering, butchery, business skills, food hygiene and food safety.  The holder of the award is expected to reflect the ethos of the Master Butcher tradition which has formed the foundation of the craft throughout its celebrated history.

Ian was honoured to receive this title and said “I have been in this trade for the last 40 years learning the whole trade from field to fork – starting in a family butchers shop then moving to Randall Parker Foods.  I have been here for 29 years and have gained knowledge in all areas which has been the backbone to me being able to evidence my experience in order to gain this title.  I am honoured to now have the title of Master Butcher”

Ian was presented with his certificate at a spectacular awards ceremony held in London on the 28th January 2015.

Well done Ian.  Randall Parker Foods are very proud of you
