The quality of our products doesn’t just happen.

It starts with the rigorous selection of our raw materials. Jimmy Robertson, our meat buyer has scoured the auction markets selecting the cream of prime cattle, quality lamb and pork to ensure that we offer you the best of Scottish produce at a consistently high quality.

We then mature our lambs for one week. Our choice cuts from our prize cattle are matured on the bone for at least a further three weeks ensuring a tender tasty steak.

Our butchers (with well over 250 years’ experience between them) are Masters of their craft. They take pride in everything they do and delight in showing off their skills in the preparation of special cuts.

Long cherished standard recipes for all value-added products are religiously followed ensuring that you will always enjoy our traditionally prepared sausage, pies and ready meals. Each Tuesday we send our van to Glasgow for the freshest of fresh tripe and livers. Market fresh fish arrives each morning (except a Monday) from Ranaldi and complements our quality offering. No short cuts. Putting into practice day in, day out standard procedures, time-tried recipes and lessons garnered over all the years to guarantee that you and your family will always enjoy anything purchased.

There are many reasons to shop at Charles Wilson. By shopping with us you are preserving a fantastic tradition which has been around for thousands of years.
