Scalloway Meat CompanyFull Member
Scalloway Meat Company endeavours to support local farmers by selling as much local produce as possible. By doing this we are supporting the local community which in turn creates jobs and keeps money within the local economy.
We have two premises. Our main shop and new processing unit is on Main Street in Scalloway, which offers a full range of fresh meat prepared daily by our team of dedicated and qualified butchers. The shop also has a well-stocked and fully licenced minimarket which also stocks a variety of Shetland produced products. In 2014 we also opened a shop in Lerwick which is located inside Toll Clock Shopping Centre on the ground floor.
We take great pride in the butchery produce we are able to provide. We source locally-produced lamb and beef all year round from crofts and farms throughout Shetland. In October each year we have Shetland lamb from the island of Papa, supplied by the Smith family of Berry in Scalloway who owned the meat company in the past. We also buy local pork when it is available.
All of our puddings are made by hand and on site. These include White Pudding, Black Pudding and Fruit Pudding. We also make our own Haggis with Gluten Free and Vegetarian options also available and not forgetting Shetland’s well-known delicacy, Reestit Mutton.
We make all of our own sandwiches, filled rolls, salad boxes, baguettes and wraps. These are all made fresh every morning. We also prepare a wide range of cooked products such as ready meals, steak pies, soups, cooked meats and cheesecakes as well as a vast range of other pies and pastries.
In 2016/17 we expanded to create a dedicated processing plant and a purpose-built kitchen facility for all of our cooked products. All of our cooked products are made with as much Shetland produce as possible. These facilities help us get the best from local produce.
In 2017, at the Scottish Craft Butchers awards, we won a Gold award for our Lasagne and also a Silver award for our White Puddings, which are made with quality local produce.
You can also find our products in the country shops we supply, as well as restaurants and cafés across Shetland.
