Company Profile



Established in 1984 Solent Butchers began life as a Family Butcher’s Retail Outlet, operating under the philosophy of providing exceptional service and quality products on every order and for every customer. Our employees are trained to respect the same philosophy. Full traceability, sustainability, provenance and our commitment to animal and farm welfare assurance schemes supporting local farmers wherever possible are key to maintaining these goals.

Today, we offer the same butchery skills, standard of product and friendly service, alongside the latest technology and extensive distribution service from our purpose built BRC Accredited Premises in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

Solent Butchers has developed into a leading Specialist Meat Supplier to the Foodservice Catering Sector, supplying a range of discerning customers, including Hotels, Public Houses and Restaurants, Nursing and Residential Homes, Schools (Independent and Public), Universities, Corporate Caterers and the Public Sector.

Today’s work determines tomorrow’s standards and by prioritising the demands of our customers we know that a policy of continuous development and improvement is the only way forward. We have taken time to develop a range of fully traceable English products where quality is not defined by the cut of meat but the whole supply chain that supports it.

We are conscious of supporting the local and surrounding communities both in terms of minimising our impact on the environment and as a supporter of local businesses causes and employment. Our Environmental Management System has been certified by South East Business Carbon Hub and we currently support the League of Friends, Portsmouth Hospital’s Rocky Appeal and are a registered ‘Business supporting older people fund (BSOP) in Hampshire’. The company works with the local employment agency to offer placements under Work Experience Scheme as well as being a keen supporter of Apprenticeships giving young people the opportunity to start and progress their careers developing their skills, knowledge and confidence.

We continually aim to improve the business on many fronts including strategic management of procurement, staff and environmental issues. Our success mirrors that of our customers’ and that is why the continued growth and development of our business is about providing our customers with a bespoke range of quality products supported by an exceptional service.
