FAQs – Local Sussex Meat & Food Distributor
What are your core products?
Our award winning cooked meats are at the heart of our business. Steve Pearce is a butcher by trade and founded the company with his wife Liz in 1989.
Do you make your own cooked meats?
Yes we do, by hand, using traditional techniques and recipes, all on site here in Brighton.
What is BRC certification?
The British Retail Consortium is an independent body that audits and regulates trading practices within the trade and retail sector. To carry BRC certification guarantees the highest standards of service and production possible as the auditing process is so exacting and thorough. We have worked hard to maintain our AA grade BRC certification. .
What other products do you supply, besides cooked meats?
We do a whole range of food products, from core lines to cakes and savouries to soups. Check out our selection by visiting the Brochures page or by exploring the rest of the website.
Where do you deliver?
We’re based on the South Coast, next to Brighton, and deliver directly across the South East, including London and the Home Counties. If you are further afield then please contact us as we may be able to deliver to you via our trusted third party couriers.
Do you make home deliveries?
As a B2B wholesaler we are only able to supply registered businesses that have successfully applied for a trading account with us. So, unfortunately, we are unable to make home deliveries.
Why aren’t there any prices in your catalogue?
We prefer to be transparent with our pricing and as such do not include artificial list prices that will then be discounted for prospective customers. Take a look through our range, let us know what you’re interested in and we will prepare a price quote tailored to your needs. That way you get the best prices first time.
What’s your position on sustainability?
We source locally as much as possible, finding the best regional food manufacturers so we can bring you great food with less miles on it.
What’s your position on provenance?
Part of our BRC certified process is to maintain full traceability of all our products. When this is coupled with our focus on good local food we remain keenly aware of the importance of the provenance of all our foods and do everything we can to make sure they come from ethical and responsible sources.
I can’t find what I’m after in the catalogue, can you help?
Most often we can source new products that we don’t currently list and we can develop bespoke cooked meat products for our larger customers. So it really is worth asking. Go to the Say Hello page to find out how to get in touch.
What sort of catering businesses can you supply?
We are able to supply every kind of business from small delis and cafes to national chains and catering firms and will be happy to discuss your requirements, however big or small.
Once I start trading with you, how do I know you’re going to look after my business?
We’re a small, friendly and very experienced team and we have successfully traded on our reputation for outstanding quality of products and service for twenty five years. We make a point of looking after our customers as that reputation is what defines us.
