The Chinese were preserving and salting pork bellies around 1500BC

Salame is singular, while Salami is plural.

Provenance with Passion

At Direct Meats we believe strongly in provenance and traceability.

Our professional team of buyers, headed by director Don Bluck, work closely with small, independent farmers and trusted suppliers around Britain.

From beef farmers and producers using traditional animal welfare and husbandry techniques, to free range duck and poultry farmers in the red hills of North Devon.

Outdoor reared pork is brought to you by welfare friendly producers from the Suffolk coastal lands, and game directly from shoots across East Anglia.

All with full traceability, giving you assurance in our provenance.

We are really proud to have in place a traceability system that, when inspected by the Rural Payments Agency Inspectorate (RPA - part of the Department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs), they concluded that our system is the best they have seen and the most transparent and easily understood.

Provenance with Passion
