We value our customers and we are proud of our products and the service we deliver. We do not compromise on quality and service.... this is the CORE OF OUR BUSINESS.
Distribution is far and wide. We not only supply to Wholesale, Retail, Catering and Restaurants within the UK but we also supply further afield. This will be covered later in our EXPORT section.
As you can imagine, supplying customers far and wide can be very challenging. Ensuring that our products are prepared and dispatched on time and reach their destination in good condition takes much planning and organizing but a challenge that we have down to a fine art.
Not only do we use our own transport but we also use third party transport companies that we have developed long-standing relationships with over the years.

Many of Simon Howie's products can be found on the shelves in the leading Supermarkets around the country.

Select was established in 2000 by James George with the help of his dad Keith. James' love of the meat industry and the traditions of cutting began at a very young age when he worked alongside his dad every school holiday on a stall at Smithfield's Market, London. His aim was to cut bespoke orders every day and fresh! This ethos has proved popular and his business has been rapidly growing since then. James has been supplying the top restuarants for the last 14 years and believes, "It's all about the meat. You can dress it up all you want but if the meat isn't perfect, the chef will know and more importantly the customer will know!"
