Rotherham, South Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 31 December 2012
Gavin Edley, 25, and Anthony Nettleship, 27, both from Rotherham in South Yorkshire, are heading a new venture designed to offer low-priced, high-quality fresh meat to people in the UK whilst also providing meals to starving children in Africa.
‘We wanted to establish a business that tackled the financial issues people currently face over here, by offering competitively-priced, fresh, quality meat – a big part of most people’s grocery bills’ said Edley, ‘But also to give something to those less fortunate than people in the UK too.’
The concept of the business, that the pair have coined ‘Bulk Meats’, is to offer restaurant-quality meat at prices that are lower than most supermarkets by offering larger, ‘bulk’ packs of fresh meat, of 1kg upwards, that people can then freeze and store at home.
With every pack of meat sold, the company are donating a meal to starving African children via the United Nation’s World Food Program.
‘With the current Economic conditions, it’s easy for people to become overly-focused on their own problems, and forget about those that are less fortunate’ said Nettleship, ‘We wanted to develop a business model that helped people with their problems in the UK, but also maintained consciousness for those in much worse conditions, and try to help those people too’.
The pair expect to feed over 7,000 starving African children within their first year of trading, with more meals being provided as the company grows and expands.
They also want to encourage more businesses to take on this type of model. ‘The United Nations report that hunger still kills more people Worldwide than AIDS, Malaria, and TB combined - that's 25,000 deaths every day due to hunger’ explained Edley, ‘If more businesses, particularly bigger, more established organisations, adopt this type of model, we can collectively tackle this issue and help to eradicate the problem of starvation Worldwide’.
Bulk Meats operate solely online, with the website and business having just launched this week.
