We are a family and catering butcher owned by the Mato family since 1979.
The family run business started in 1979 when Julio Mato took the business over from Phil Thorne, it continued running from the same premises, 59 Salisbury Street, Blandford, until this was out grown in 1989.
Julio then moved the family butchers and expanded the catering side of the business to the present premises of 7 West Street, Blandford.
Julio took a back seat in the day to day running of the family business for many years until he finally retired and moved back to Spain in 2005, leaving the business in the capable hands of his son, Simon, who has been expanding the business ever since.
Simon has implemented many new changes, starting with refurbishment of the shop, cutting plant and office.
He has also bought new vehicles as needed and new machinery for the cutting plant. He has brought everything up to a very high standard.
Simon believes that if you work in a comfortable, bright environment it reflects on your work and wellbeing.
