Simon’s passion for the butchery industry started at the age of thirteen when he took his first job in traditional high street butchers’ shop. It was from there that Simon’s love for the industry began to grow and 26 years on he is now the successful owner of Surrey Hills Butchers. Simon has been very fortunate to have worked with some amazing people within the industry through social media and TV as well as appearing at some of the UK’s top festivals.
Having worked in butchers most of his life, Simon understands the importance of keeping the traditional skills alive and aims to train and educate as many butchers as he can during his career. This has led him to Captain Team GB in the World’s Butchers Challenge requiring Simon to create and develop innovative dishes that can compete on the world stage.
Simon is truly a passionate advocate for the industry and believes that “with everything our country has been through recently, it’s time to show the world what is truly Great about Britain. Standing together we can show the nation and beyond, real field to fork and how much Britain has to offer and celebrate”.
