Lamb & Mutton – Towers Thompson Trading Imports

Towers Thompson Trading has gained a reputation over the past 100 years as a key importer of the highest quality New Zealand and Australian lamb and mutton.

Our Trading operation’s comprehensive range of lamb products includes weight-ranged lamb shanks, frenched rack of lamb, chilled carvery lamb legs and New Zealand lamb rumps.  To further supplement our range, we have also introduced premium whole lamb cuts from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.

Working in close partnership with our producers we have developed a supply chain of chilled lamb with a 90-day shelf life.  Furthermore, we are now also able to offer all year-round availability of frozen and chilled primal cuts of lamb.

There has been an emerging demand over the years for all mutton items particularly bone in and boneless mutton legs, mutton tenderloins and mutton skirts. As a result we supply a wide variety of frozen imported mutton cuts to suit wholesale, food service and manufacturing requirements, all produced to HALAL certification in accordance with the BRC Agents and Brokers standard.

Since the Covid19 pandemic emerged our UK based Trading, Exports and Depots operations together with our German operation Rassau Seafoods have continually introduced measures to address the fast-evolving situation. The continued health and safety of our colleagues working in very difficult circumstances remains a key priority for the business and the management.

Therefore, as a responsible business we have introduced a wide range of measures including increased awareness, promotion of good hygiene practices, posters, distribution of hand sanitisers, masks, shields as well as the provision of other PPE equipment. Temperature checks have also been introduced as well as distancing measures. We have worked closely with our suppliers of products and services to find practical solutions in order to continue to deliver product to our customers as safely and effectively as possible.

We have compiled the steps that we have been taking to assess and mitigate the risks in Risk Assessments covering our UK based Trading and Depot Wholesale Operations. These comprehensive assessments are on display at each of our UK locations.

Towers Thompson will take the appropriate actions to continue providing our employees a safe and healthy working environment whilst constantly evaluating the situation and monitoring any changes in government policy and guidelines.
