Meat Management Awards 2021

Training Scheme of the Year Winner 2021!

The Meat Management Industry Awards were announced on the 9th September at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

MEAT Ipswich Ltd were extremely proud to have won Training Scheme of the Year 2021.


John Croxford loved the meat industry; 35 years ago, it was his vision to create an independent butchery school which is now known as M.E.A.T Ipswich. Since then, M.E.A.T Ipswich is recognised as a highly regarded training organisation that offers Apprenticeships, Advanced Apprenticeships, Awards, Certificates and Butchery Courses to businesses and individuals all over the country.

The aim of M.E.A.T Ipswich is to instil professionalism, enthusiasm and pride in all the apprentice butchers who train with us. We are now training the sons, daughters, nieces and nephews of past students.

We work with amazing employers, who know that if this wonderful industry is to continue, then we must have highly trained and motivated staff who have flexible minds and skills to move forward.

During the past year the pandemic has proved how resourceful we are as a business in the meat industry and it is indeed an honour to be recognised for the professionals we are.
