Beef up your Christmas dinner & Make sure it’s Manx! - IOM Meats

If you’re tired of turkey, or looking to give your family an extra tasty treat this Christmas, now is the ideal time to try the finest Manx beef, lamb and pork from Isle of Man Meats.

We work closely with Isle of Man producers, butchers and retailers to build in quality from pasture to plate. Trust us, if you haven’t tried Manx meat before you will love it and really will be able to taste the difference when compared to lower quality, cheaper, alternatives. This was evident in our customer survey which highlighted that 70% of consumers believe that Manx meat is better quality than meat from the UK.

And, of course, you and your family will be supporting Manx farmers (we work with over 220 local farms), and the local economy. You will also have the reassurance of knowing that what you are eating is fully traceable from pasture to plate, has low food miles, and is produced with the highest production and animal welfare standards.

2019 has been a great year for Isle of Man Meats. It started with the launch of our ‘Make Sure It’s Manx’ campaign (with Harding’s Quality Meats in Onchan the first butcher’s shop to support this) and was followed by a number of partnerships which have significantly increased the market for our products both on and off-Island. The year ended with our meat becoming available at Tesco’s Douglas store, Ramsey Co-op (Christian Street) enhancing its range with vacuum packed Manx Beef Roasting Joints, and local butchers shops WE Teare, Lee Mayers, and Andreas Meat Co taking delivery of meat we supplied from prize-winning livestock at the recent Primestock Show.

Our growth is not just good news for us and our business, it’s also good news for the Isle of Man. Agriculture is really important to the Island not only in economic terms, but also because of its positive contribution to the community and landscape. Isle of Man Meats is an important part of the Island’s agricultural ecosystem which connects producers to key markets, returns cash back to the industry, and supports the local economy.

We would not be successful if the hard work of the Isle of Man Meats team was not matched by our fantastic network of farmers, butchers and other retailers, DEFA, our business partners such as Trade Distribution Ltd and Northgate Foods and – last but certainly not least – the growing number of consumers who buy and enjoy our products.

From everyone at Isle of Man Meats, we say a heartfelt thank you for your loyal support, and wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
