Summer 2022 meat market report
Read Our Market Report
Over the last few months Campbell Brothers have continued our best efforts to recover from the impact of COVID, whilst negotiating our way through the challenging market place we still find ourselves in. Throughout lockdowns we kept our dry aged beef stock to minimum due to lack of demand but over the last few months, as the hospitality industry has begun to find its feet again, we are very proud to say our Himalayan Salt Dry Aged Chamber is once again well stock with the best quality Scotch Beef available.
As widely document across the industry, one of the main challenges we currently face, and expect to continue to face over the coming months, is the shortage and therefore increasing price of poultry. The outbreak of Avian Bird Flu in Europe has resulted in stocks of duck being cut to just 25% of normal volumes and thousands of chickens being culled in The Netherlands leading to shortages across the market. If you are going to require large volumes of chicken please try your best to plan ahead and get your orders in as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Staffing remains a challenge for Campbell Brothers as we try to increase our head count back to where it was pre-COVID. We have been recruiting for a number of positions across our business including; butchers, fish mongers, drivers and general operatives. We are looking forward to bringing many skilled and talented staff into our Campbell Brothers family and working together to offer the best quality products and service possible to our valued customers.
Once again we would like to thank all our customers who have worked with us during this challenging time and understanding that we must react to market changes. Please always remember, despite rising costs, there is usually always an alternative, whether that be on origin or specification change, our experienced team are always here to help.
