AN Altham meat wholesaler is on schedule to achieve a turnover in excess of £3m in its first year.

Grass Roots Wholesale Food Ltd also said it was also outgrowing its 8,000ft warehouse on the Moorfield Industrial Estate.

The company, owned by Simon and Nick Mellin, and a private investor, has grown its staff from five to 40, and will continue to expand.

With the average age of a butcher being 55, Grass Roots is also in talks with a local college in order to provide training programmes for young people wishing to enter the trade.

Simon said: “From a very young age we learned the traditional methods of both farming and butchery and by sharing our knowledge and skills we can ensure quality meat for generations to come.”

Anyone wishing to apply for a position within this fast growing business should email their CVs to gary@ grassrootswholesalefoods.co.uk
