OPERATIONS & PORTFOLIO
We have different operational sites across the UK, including Rotherham, Chesterfield and Godalming, as well as our own upland sheep farm; Ladywash Farm in the Peak District National Park.
We are proud to operate on the local, regional, national and global stages; from our popular chain of shops to our catering supply divisions, which deliver nationally and source the best quality produce from the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Please read on for information about our portfolio.
Our family of UK production and distribution sites enable us to provide the best possible service for our customers.
Underwood Meat Company in Rotherham is home to our national production and distribution centre, focusing on national food service and retail restaurant accounts.
Our BRC assured, dedicated production facility for high quality sausages and burgers serves the requirements of our customers across the group.
At Godalming we process and deliver products for the South of England. We mainly supply London from here but offer a regional solution for this part of the country.
New Premises - Chesterfield
To ensure that our business is fit for strategic future growth with efficient operational/productive systems, logistics and effective purchasing/stock holding space we have expanded into an additional premises in Chesterfield.
The site - a 21,000 sq ft food production site - is BRC AA approved, with established fresh and frozen meat production facilities, part of which is a 4,000 sq ft cold storage facility with 600 pallet storage bays for both chilled and frozen material.
Our portfolio of associated businesses enables us to provide bespoke service for our customers’ varying needs across the entire sector; from restaurant supply to the home market, products with provenance to specialist products and expertly manufactured products, we demonstrate a wealth of experience and capability.
While Underwood Meat Company is the core of our business, Northern Catering provides bespoke product solutions for independent outlets and our National Parks Quality Beef & Lamb ensure we have a premium range of the finest quality local products born and nurtured in the UK’s beautiful National Parks.
In recent years we have grown our retail chain, The Butchers Shop, in Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Our stores have grown on the popularity of our restaurant supply ethos - quality and value. We are proud to have expanded to eight outlets, with more planned, serving local communities.
Northern Catering Butchers, part of the Underwoods Meat Group, has over 40 years’ experience supplying high quality, fresh meat products to the catering industry.
These qualities, along with expert procurement, integrity, traceability and a flexible approach to individual needs, ensure we strive to deliver customer satisfaction at all times.
Under Northern Catering Butchers we are the only catering butchers to offer a premium range of National Parks beef and lamb products.
The range is sourced exclusively from the UK's 15 National Parks, principally the North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District.
This contributes to the viability of these traditional farms.
Following an increased interest in our products from the general public we opened our first branch of The Butcher's Shop in Rotherham in December 2008.
The site, based at our factory outlet, was such a success that we have since opened branches in Barnsley, Dronfield, Eckington and Doncaster, Sheffield, Leeds, Wakefield and Nottingham with more planned.
