But through hard work and a focus on quality, Somerset Meats has now become one of the largest meat wholesalers in the region. With over 150 customers, Somerset is continuing to grow and now employs over 15 staff and has upgraded the small shop at Waratah to a large scale warehouse operation in Sandgate.

Somerset Meats offers a diverse range of products with our goal being customer satisfaction from our quality meat in unison with our service exceeding expectation. Our deliveries span to all sections of this great part of the country we call the Hunter. From deep in the vineyards of Pokolbin, the coastal stretches of Nelson Bay, the picturesque views around Lake Macquarie to the ever evolving CBD, we deliver to all areas of this great region we live in. We deliver 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday, which makes ordering very easy for all of our customers and gives them peace of mind knowing that they can call on us anytime for a delivery. Our recently purchased fleet of 7 vans all meet the NSW Food Regulation’s health criteria so you know your meat will be kept at an optimal temperature during transport to your premises.

So if your restaurant, pub, club, café, bistro or kitchen is built on the same values of quality which Somerset Meats is, then why don’t you give one of our sales reps a call to come visit and speak to you about what product would best suit your needs.
