About Us

Want to save 20% or even more ON YOUR WEEKLY MEAT without any compromise on taste or quality? Here at The Cork Meat Company our mission is to help you do just that.

A fully family-owned business, The Cork Meat Company is dedicated to bringing you the very best in premium quality meats from local and Irish sources, but at prices significantly lower than you’ll find in a traditional butcher’s shop or supermarket meat counter.

The Cork Meat Company approach

Established in 2010 by Cork brothers John and Padraig Byrne – both well-known in the trade with a family butchering tradition in Cork stretching back to 1936 – The Cork Meat Company differs from traditional butcher’s shops in that every effort is made to keep business overheads to minimum, with the savings then being passed directly on to the consumer.

This means premium quality Irish beef, lamb, poultry and pork at prices that are on average 20% lower than competitors.

“We are selling the same superb Irish meat from the same network of trusted producers and suppliers that we have dealt with in many years of involvement in the butchering trade in Cork,” John Byrne says.

“The difference with The Cork Meat Company is that our rental costs, staffing levels and other overheads are much lower, thereby enabling us to pass on the savings to you.

“Our motto says it all, really – The Best for Less.”

This means the finest quality Irish beef, lamb, poultry and pork at prices that are on average 20% lower than competitors – unbeatable value for money.
