Booker invests in butchery training

Food and drink wholesaler Booker has trained over 40 of its staff in butchery skills to solve recruitment difficulties caused by a shortage of butchers.

The newly-trained butchery staff previously held other positions within branches and with further development can potentially progress to future Butchery Managers.

The local butchery service forms an important part of Booker's catering offering and the roll out of the training scheme will ensure the company's commitment to providing a personal service as well as allowing an improved butchery counter at evenings and weekends.

Staff are encouraged to cover the course, which covers stock taking, cutting meat for the counter and customer service, at their own pace although it takes an average of 12 months to complete.
