The Warrnambool Meat Barn began serving the Warrnambool and district community with quality produce at family-friendly prices in March 2008.
However, the concept for the store had been floating around its owners’ minds for some time – as a local family which ran the district’s only abattoir, a local butcher shop and Meat On The Move service, a large retail outlet seemed a logical progression.
A site was located in the town’s industrial estate, adjacent to the Midfield Meat Group’s abattoirs – and work on the new store began.
Opening in March 2008, the store was inundated with customers keen to take advantage of its quality product and attractive prices. As a Victorian butcher shop with wholesale meat prices, demand soon necessitated an extension of its product ranges and the shop floor.
The Meat Barn has absorbed the Meat On The Move facet of the business and caters for wholesale and retail customers.
