Established in 1888, we are a family run company with expertise in cooked meat manufacturing. We are proud of our reputation as one of the North West’s leading producers. We combine traditional methods and recipes passed down through generations, incorporating new ideas, using modern efficient equipment, in turn creating top quality products.
Who are we?
Kings and Butchers Fayre has gained an unblemished reputation throughout the food industry for quality, freshness and food safety.
We believe that the dedication to quality and service shown by our employees has been key to our success and we encourage and support our employees to live our values. Everybody here makes a difference.
Ensure all our employees share our passion and commitment for providing the best possible product and service to our customers. Everyone in the business, from production workers to the sales team, has an important role to play in conveying our values and striving for the highest standards in food safety, quality and a workplace culture we can all be proud to be apart of.
What we stand for
Our mantra is:
Food Safety is in your hands.
As an employee, you have access to the company’s subsidised canteen and are also entitled to join the company’s pension scheme. Additional benefits may include a Kings card, providing a 10% discount in any of our stores, a company mobile phone, career development and other learning and development opportunities.
Each and every person has an important part to play in our continued success. We have many roles that make up our teams and we are not joking when we employ every skill set from the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker! Below is a snapshot of the jobs and people who make up our talented and very much valued teams.
