Policies and Principles

A Promise of Wholesome Family Fare
We are a family company offering food for the family table. When you choose Chapmans meats, baked goods and meal options you are serving Sunday Best quality every day of the week.

Our Personal Commitment to Quality
Jamie and Deirdre Chapman are at the markets every week, personally selecting the stock for the Chapman shops – and for our wholesale customers. We are a farming family and know how to check for the differences that set the best apart from the average. The personal care we take at selection carries through every step of the way to the shop counter.

Meticulous Care in Preparation
With our own abattoir, processing centre and bakehouses, we are able to manage everything for quality. We have 6 shops and a wholesale business, putting us in the Top 5 independent butchers in Scotland for total volume throughput. But we don’t take shortcuts. We invest in modern processes, equipment and Staff training. The difference this makes is proven on the plate.

Your Local Butcher Shop – Cold Outside, Warm Inside
‘Service with a Smile’ is more than a catchphrase at Chapmans. Your local shop is a happy places, with a friendly word for everyone. When there is a queue, there is often as much talk between shoppers as at the counter. We take pride in our skilled, loyal Staff and the quality of their ‘first names and a wee chat’ service. If you want something cut a certain way, just a wee bit of something – or something that you don’t see on display – just ask, and your server will do their best to please.
