Tallangatta is located in the foothills of the Victorian Alps where the Mitta and Kiewa rivers meet. This results in environmentally clean and green farming lands ideal for growing lamb to meet our customers’ expectations of a wholesome, food safe and consistent product.
The Smith family have been involved in the meat industry for over 50 years.
Ron and Neil Smith operated the Tallangatta butcher shop before deciding to construct a small processing plant to service their own shop in 1976. After seeing a demand for local product, they were soon processing meat for many butcher’s in the region, before branching out to service both Sydney and Melbourne.
The business has passed from Neil to his son Doug who has continued to grow the business. Doug’s five son’s Tom, Reuben, Will, Fergus and Ambrose all have active roles within the business.
The Smith family prides itself on their care, quality, and consistency. 70% of our Australian customer base has dealt with us for over 20 years, proving not only our loyalty to each person we serve, but also the service we provide.
