Local Butchers, Glaves Butchers, from Brompton have been recognised at the Countryside Alliance Awards in London. The reception took place on 25 April 2018 in the Cholmondeley Room, House of Lords.
Glaves were already the regional winner in the Butchers category and they went on to get the highly commended runners up award. Glaves Butchers is one that has a long and proud history and is a true family butchers. All meat is sourced from the local area or from their own farm, before being processed in their onsite abattoir and cutting room. They have sought to diversify and go beyond the classic model by offering an excellent range of pies and sandwiches, as well as investing in growing the shop element of the business. Despite facing setbacks such as a fire that destroyed a significant part of the business in 2013, this butchers has continued to succeed. They are situated in Brompton by Sawdon (near Scarborough).
The Countryside Alliance received over 11,000 nominations in the five categories this year so their success is a testament to their tremendous contribution to their community.
Robert Goodwill MP attended the awards and congratulated James and Antony Glaves at the event. He said: “This award is testament to the amazing quality of the produce sold in the shop in Brompton and delivered to pubs, restaurants and caterers around the area. I am a particular fan of their pork pies which are sheer heaven. Glaves also now make their own black pudding, I was told, so I will be making a special effort to call in and try their version of one of my breakfast favourites. Special congratulations should go to all the staff and patriarch of the business, Brian who was holding the fort at home today.”
