The Ethical Butcher
Eager to prove that eating meat shouldn’t cost the earth, The Ethical Butcher are on a mission to prove that they could ‘be that change’ in the meat industry. Their belief that humans have become far too disconnected from food and the land where it comes from, has fuelled their purpose to reconnect people with nature.
Like Thomas Franks, they treat every community member as part of their family. They take pride in producing high-quality and flavoursome meats, ranging from managing soil health to regenerating the land. Their passion for environmental change is noticeable throughout their company and this led The Ethical Butcher to be voted as one of the best eco foods. The Ethical Butcher’s ‘farm to table’ concept has made them stand out from competitors and has been noticed by the likes of Forbes, The Telegraph and The Times. As featured in the ’12 biggest global food trends for 2021’ by the National Geographic, it is safe to say that The Ethical Butcher’s message is definitely making an impact on our society.
