Consortium led by ex-Asda CEO Andy Clarke begins phased re-opening of Farmison & Co
Online butcher Farmison & Co has begun a phased re-opening of operations following its acquisition by a consortium led by ex-Asda chief executive Andy Clarke.
The company has announced that a selection of heritage breeds has gone on sale on its website with more ranges due to be gradually brought back over the weeks ahead. Its Ripon shop and click-and-collect location ‘Cut by Farmison’ will also re-open later this week.
The sustainable meat retailer was recently acquired out of administration by a consortium that also includes Chilli Marketing’s Gareth Whittle, Christian Barton and Kieron Barton.
Initial ranges available to customers online include 32 day dry aged rib steak, handmade hot dogs and Farmison & Co’s signature cut dry aged sirloin steak, as well as pork, chicken and lamb sourced from its network of farms across the north.
Now the company’s executive chairman, Clarke said: “I want to give a massive thank you to the Farmison team who’ve acted with incredible speed to bring the business back to life – and of course to our farmers across Yorkshire and the North, who are determined to support the business get back on its feet.
“We’ve been absolutely bowled over by the messages of support from colleagues, customers and suppliers since taking ownership of the business. It will be some weeks yet before we have our full ranges back online, but we thank each and every one of the customers who’ve sent us those messages of encouragement and support over the past few weeks. It means the world to the whole Farmison team.”
Farmison & Co sells online directly to customers across the UK and through wholesale channels such as Harrods, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason and Michelin star restaurants.
