We are explicitly open and publicise the provenance, food miles and animal husbandry of all our farms and suppliers within our supply chain, offering peace of mind across our customer base accordingly.
We find that consumers are demanding more locally sourced meat and taking a stand against globalisation: customers more so than ever before want meat that has been raised locally, meat that has travelled the smallest distance from gate to plate. However it is not just a low mileage meal they demand, quality meat still sets a precedent and remains integral to the demand for a transparent economic cycle. Consumers want to see highly skilled butchery incorporated with regional local suppliers and materials within their production processes with the additional benefits of prime cuts of meat from breed specific herds, reared using specialist farming techniques which demonstrates the butchers knowledge and technical quality.
IMS strongly believes in the purchase and continued supply of British Meat and for the 40 years, since IMS has been established, we have developed strong relationships with many of Britain’s most prestigious farms that offer us generations of experience, quality and ethnicity. We feel a sense of responsibility in the purchase of British beef, pork, lamb and poultry and the added support that this gives to the British meat industry as a whole.
Our industry has been built around the traditions and product quality of our farms and without the support from companies such as ourselves we would witness a steady decline in what is regarded as the cornerstone of our industry here in the UK.
