A family-run business since 1904, Preston’s Master Butchers specialises in providing quality meat and small goods for wholesale, and for individuals and families throughout New Zealand.
We are passionate about our people and continually strive to provide our customers with the best value and highest quality product. Today the fourth generation of the family share the same commitment and passion as their forbears.
Preston’s Master Butchers was founded by an English butcher, Arthur Edward Preston, who came to New Zealand from Liverpool in the 1890s. Arthur worked for a local meat exporter called the Gear Meat Company before opening his own shop in Tory Street, and he enjoyed phenomenal success. He had seven shops, a smallgoods and pickle factory, a bacon factory in Blenheim, and a fleet of horse-drawn carts which sold fresh meat to residents in the Wellington suburbs.
Arthur’s grandsons went on to open a purpose-built, specialist meat processing operation in Hopper Street in 1978 to supply meat to the trade as well as to the general public.
With such a rich history of supplying the best cuts of meat, both wholesale and to the public, there really is no reason to buy meat from anywhere else. Our online offering includes banquet roasts, traditional cuts of pork, lamb, beef and chicken, and other meat such as offal, duck and turkey. We also have ham, bacon, sausages, and a separate Halal meat offering. We have something for every occasion!
Use the convenience of our online store and take the hassle out of your shopping.
Members of the public are able to enjoy great value with our quality products and fantastic prices since they can purchase their meat direct from the producer, instead of via a third-party such as a supermarket or online reseller.
With shops conveniently located in Wellington and Porirua, you can visit our friendly butchers in-person to choose all your meat products and small goods. While you’re in-store, you can talk to us about traditional recipes, and benefit from our friendly advice on the tastiest cuts and preparing and cooking your meat to get the very best from it. We also feature in-store specials so you can pick up a bargain and feed your family for less.
