All About Us
At Preseli Bluestone Meats, we are catering butchers that sell impeccable Welsh lamb and beef with the privilege of Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). Based in Johnstown, Carmarthen, we are a long-established company of more than 32 years and boast high-quality meat for sale so that you can feel confident with your purchase. With an excellent five-star rating in hygiene from the Food Standards Agency, a state-of-the-art cutting plant is utilised that adheres to all of the strict hygiene standards within the rest of the business as well.
Trusted, respected professionals
As prestigious members of the Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef Butchers’ Club, we are currently, and have been for several years, approved PGI premises and therefore permitted to sell Welsh lamb and beef.
Providing a first-class service
Operating across the whole of South and mid Wales, Preseli Bluestone Meats is primarily focused on meeting the needs of modern catering and hospitality operators. We provide first-class customer service and exceptional quality and flexibility to suit individual business requirements, including hotels, pubs, restaurants, and care homes. Never forgetting the general public, our friendly butchers offer a personal, first-class service at our retail shop where you can purchase your own restaurant-quality meats at competitive prices.
Utilising ingredients of the finest quality
We boast a wide range of meat and poultry, from value lines through to classic gourmet selections of Preseli Bluestone Meats lamb and beef, all of which come from our reputable suppliers and have full traceability. Our various homemade sausages and burgers are exquisitely produced in small quantities using the finest ingredients, ensuring that flavour and freshness is guaranteed.
Excellent hygiene standards
We are regularly visited by the Environmental Health service as well as the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and proudly continue to hold the five-star rating for our retail shop. With continuous excellent reports from the FSA, recent visits confirm excellent results in our procedures and maintenance of the plant. All of our meats and poultry are cut and prepared in a temperature-controlled cutting room, and we offer a highly efficient delivery service with our fleet of temperature-controlled vans.
