MEAT THE TEAM

Doug Jarvis

Owner

Doug was born in Tyldesley, a small town just out of Manchester, England. His father owned a small butcher shop with which he and his 3 brothers worked in. Doug started off scrubbing the Abattoir at about age 12 and butchering just after this until age 24. He then went to University of Salford in Manchester, where he studied Meat Inspection and Microbiology. He was a Meat Inspector to the UK Government before coming to NZ in 2006. After a 12 month stint of being a Meat Inspector locally and not being able to find a good sausage, Doug opened up his own Butchers Shop here in the sunny Bay of Plenty. Doug holds a Certificate of Meat Inspection in both the UK and New Zealand.
