Reynolds announce investment partnership with Select Butchery

20 November 2022 by

Independent fresh fruit and vegetable supplier Reynolds has joined forces with Select Butchery, a meat and poultry supplier to the catering industry.

The new arrangement will see Reynolds strengthen their meat capabilities, with the catering butchery expertise of James George and the Select Butchery team.

Customers will now be able to select traditional and rare-breed beef, meadow-grown lamb, 100% British outdoor bred pork and free-range poultry. The businesses will continue to operate from two sites in Waltham Cross and Hainault.

Tony Reynolds, founder and managing director of Reynolds, said, "Both Reynolds and Select Butchery share similar family values and take enormous pride in their product. I've no doubt that we have a great future together. This strategic partnership will enable Reynolds to offer a wider variety of bespoke, freshly cut meats to clients and I would like to welcome the team at Select to the Reynolds' family.

"This new partnership reinforces Reynolds' ambition of becoming ‘The UK's go-to-solution for all types of fresh food, most admired for our great people, strategic partnerships and unrivalled quality and service. Combining with our other speciality businesses, Shoal for fish, Davin Foods for prepared foods, Solstice for speciality produce and Carnivore for added-value meat products, we are even closer to offering customers all the benefits of a speciality "Food Town" on one single delivery."

James George, founder and managing director of Select Butchery, added: "Synergies between the two companies will undoubtedly offer huge benefits for everyone concerned. For Select, accessing Reynolds' distribution network and operational capabilities means we will become a nationally available brand overnight. I am also delighted to announce that we will be developing a new range of premium, sustainable and ethical meat products under the Turner & George brand, which will shortly be available to the foodservice market for the first time."
