More about us
In 1968 George's son, Alan Butcher joined the company full time after leaving school, having worked there in the Christmas holidays. Alan encouraged expansion into the meat market and so Butcher & Edmonds started supplying beef, lamb and pork, as well as poultry and game to meet the growing demands of their London clientele.
In the late 70's, when Harry Edmonds retired, George and Alan continued the company together, keeping the reputable Butcher & Edmonds name. Both men were 'Freeman of the City of London' and also belonged to the Worshipful Company of Poulters, incorporated under a Royal Charter in 1665 - 34th Livery Company of the City of London.
In 2004, the company moved to larger premises in Smithfield Market followed in 2008 by yet a further expansion move to Hereford House in London. Here we continue to enjoy supplying over 100 award winning restaurants and livery halls in London and the South East.
