2016 Scottish Craft Butchers Training AwardsTuesday, 8th Nov 2016
The judges were very impressed with the high standard of all the nominations that were received and were hard pressed to make their final selections. Indeed in two of the categories they couldn’t decide on only two finalists and three have gone through.
This is the first year of what is destined to become an annual Craft Butchers Training Awards and we were delighted with the response from our assessors, trainees, training partners and their customers who all nominated.

We don’t find butchers we make them!! Employ for attitude – train for skills.
