You may have noticed a bright yellow advertisement balloon over Preston today with the word MEAT highlighted on the side and wondered what it was. Apologies to vegetarians but today is the opening (or re-opening) of Meat @ the Factory in the city.

The newly refurbished store on Elliott Street in Preston boasts restaurant quality food at factory prices.

I had to go along and have a look.

The store is well stocked with a huge selection of fresh and frozen meat as well as a small selection of branded items plus fresh veg, pies and sandwiches.

Meat @ the Factory say they cut, prepare, pack and present direct from the factory to the store thereby cutting costs and reducing food miles. All great. But I had one question. I could not see from the packaging what location the meat was sourced from. At the time I visited I could not find this out.

I decided to go for the rib-eye steak which I was told was really good. Priced at £5.99 for two (400g), representing good value compared to the supermarkets, I thought the meat was tender and tasty. However, I still need to know where it came from. I think it is always good to know where the meat you are eating originated. I will try and update when  have more information.

Meat @ the Factory as a business concept originated from a store in Longton and became accredited suppliers to many caterers including the San Marco Restaurant. They later expanded to their present location in Preston.


Meat @ the Factory has a facebook page plus loyalty club card membership together with special offers at the weekends.
