The Sheppard family have been butchers for over 70 years. In the early days, the family had retail shops throughout the Bristol area; however the company has grown considerably. 


During the early 60's when the nation's eating habits were changing and more and more people were eating out, John Sheppard saw the opportunity of supplying caterers and larger manufacturers of food with specialty cuts of both fresh and frozen quality meats and meat products.


John Sheppard opened three large retail shops (with large butcheries at the rear), designed to supply the retail market, caterers, hotels and restaurants, and large food manufacturers.  In 1967 the first satellite unit was set up; by the early 70's the business had grown, and to meet demand the present site was acquired in 2001, and a state of the art meat processing plant was opened.


Today the business is still very much a family concern with no less than six members of the family involved in the business. The company supplies high quality meat and meat products to many well-known Hotels and Restaurants, National Catering Authorities, Schools, Universities, Hospitals, Social Service Departments, Bakeries, and other large food manufacturers.

John Sheppard Butchers are delighted to be recognised as an Investors in People business. They are the first butchers in the country to be given this accreditation so it’s a great achievement for everyone in the business. With the company continuing to grow and more staff being employed on an annual basis the management wanted the family culture of the business to remain intact throughout its growth. Approaching Investors in People was one way of achieving this and to be acknowledged as an employer who puts the wellbeing and development of staff first is something to be proud of. The company also won ‘family business of the year’ at a recent business awards ceremony; another recognition of its strong culture and staff engagement. John Sheppard Butchers are proud supplier to TUCO and look forward to working with more members over the coming years. Please contact adam@john-sheppard.co.uk for more details on supply.
