Richard Guy's Real Meat Company

Providers of first class meat

The claim of The Real Meat Company is to offer "Flavour without Equal, Welfare without Compromise". Its products are not organic or accredited by the Soil Association, however the company is very open about its agricultural practices and adheres to a unique, high standard of welfare and diet codes that are checked independently by a team from Bristol University Veterinary School. The minimum order from the primarily retail-oriented site is £35 and the delivery charge is very reasonable. There is a £5 discount voucher offer for new customers.


Product Range
The Real Meat Company's classic pork sausages were recently voted the best in Britain by BBC Good Food magazine, while its bacon received a similar accolade from the Food and Drink television programme. The bacon and hams are produced using the excellent Wiltshire cure, while smoking is done over oak. The range of burgers includes pork and apple, pork and bacon, lamb and mint and plain beef burgers. In addition there are kebabs and koftas made of beef, pork or lamb with flavours including tikka, mint, madras and korma. Sausages include classic, chipolatas, country pork, breakfast pork and pork and leek. You can also buy a range of popular cuts of meat and chicken, plus gourmet ready-to-cook dishes such as a chicken boned and stuffed with plum and ginger.
