Powters Butchers launches online shop to deliver nationwide for lockdown


As the second national lockdown gets underway, family-run butchers, Powters, has gone online for the first time, offering fresh meat for delivery nationwide to those not wanting to leave the comfort of their home.

Fresh meat for delivery nationwide

With a selection of the very best quality British meat including East Anglian farmed pork, Suffolk farmed chicken, Norfolk-farmed lamb and Yorkshire farmed beef, as well as a range of sauces, seasonings and other pantry items, the new Powters Butchers & Deli online shop www.powters-butchers.co.uk aims to provide consumers with everything they need to create delicious meals this winter.

“We’ve been working on developing our online shop for some time, but the current timing for our launch couldn’t be better,” says Tristan Powter. “The first lockdown saw our butchers shop incredibly busy and we were delivering locally, so it seemed logical to extend that service nationally as well as to offer our more local customers a simple easy way to ‘Click and Collect’ their shopping.”

Powters has been trading on the high street in Newmarket since 1881 and is renowned for developing the famous Newmarket Sausage, which is as popular today as it was then.

Still run by the Powter family to this day, the business has gone from the high street to the supermarket shelves over the years, with its own branded range of Powters sausages which are sold in national chains across the UK.

Now, with a well-designed and easy to navigate online shop in operation, the firm is looking forward to dealing with customers from further afield and taking orders from people who want quality meat delivered directly to their door. “People are now shopping online more than ever before and want to support independent businesses for a better quality product and service,” continues Tristan. “We pride ourselves on butchering and selling the best quality meat from mainly local farms in East Anglia and have also teamed up with other local, likeminded business to create a full offer.”

The online shop will sell everything from whole chickens to legs of lamb, chops and steaks, as well as bacon, burgers, sausages and pantry items. Customers local to Newmarket can order online with the Click & Collect service, or for those further afield, orders can be placed for delivery on a Wednesday or Friday for just £6.95 for a minimum order of £30.
