Scott and Ed worked together at a wholesale abattoir and butchers on and off over a 12 year period (between Scott’s travelling). They were looking to start a business together as they both had their own sideline businesses. Through their love of cooking, their passion for meat and customer service in 2018 The Meat Men was born.
The Meat Men had a mobile food stand which went to shows and events throughout England and Wales serving their own dry-aged beef in steak sandwiches, burgers, breakfast baps etc. The stand was called - The Somerset Steakhouse. In 2020 all events being cancelled due to COVID-19 The Meat Men knew they had to diversify their business. The business started getting messages from customers who from time to time used to buy fresh meat from the company saying that due to COVID and the start of lockdown they couldn’t get delivery slots from supermarkets and really didn’t want to venture out to the shops.
The Meat Men quickly realised they could offer their award winning meat to customers by advertising on social media and offering a free delivery service. Over the last 12 months since the first lockdown the business has grown from the 2 men cutting and delivering a few orders over a Wednesday and Thursday to now operating 6 days a week, 2 members of staff (both Lin & Andy plus Becky and Kristi), 2 delivery vehicles as well as a busy wholesale business supplying other butchers and trade customers.
