Craft Butchers

About ACBI

While economic pressures are hitting the family budget Associated Craftbutchers of Ireland has advised that the best solution to this, as to many things is an old solution; in this case the not so difficult art of meal making.

Families can hit the twin objectives of healthy and economical eating by shopping wisely and learning a few basic skills in putting together a tasty stew or the classic ‘Meat and two veg’ solution.

Families are being assailed by the fast food industry with a barrage of propaganda about the value to be had from pizza, burger options and the like. While there is nothing wrong with the odd meal of this type it is neither healthy nor economical on a long term basis.

The message? Ask your local Craft Butcher to recommend cuts of meat that suit your budget; along with helping you choose the best value cuts, he will also offer advice on how to cook it. By forming a relationship with your local craft butcher, you are ensuring the best quality meat, at a price you can afford.
