A popular Ribble Valley butcher has expanded into a third branch.

Anderton’s Ribble Valley Butcher has taken over the former Harrison and Kerr premises in King Street, 

The long-established butchers’ shop was opened by Brendan Anderton and his wife Petrina in 1972 from the family farm, capitalising on the deep freeze boom by making up freezer orders of meat.

Shortly after they opened their first shop in Derby Road, Longridge.

Andertons also has a catering and wholesale outlet supplying beef, lamb, pork and chicken to a range of businesses including restaurants, nursing homes, schools and hospitals across the region.

The established company has retained its family values and is still run by five members of the family.

The family hopes that their vision of the future will always maintain Brendan’s businesses ethos: ‘quality service and civility’.

There is a team of skilled butchers, in total 28 members of local staff and a fleet of 11 refrigerated delivery vans.
