Our team

Established in 1981, Burts has grown to become one of the South coast’s leading catering butchers. We believe this is down to our original philosophy; to provide the best quality produce and the customer service to match.

Our People

David Burt


David has over 15 years’ experience in the industry, having started as a Saturday boy just like his father. Over the years he’s worked in every area of the business, so knows the day-to-day running of it inside out. He now looks after the day-to-day operation of Burts, which includes keeping a watchful eye over the sales and buying side of the business.

Terry Burt


Terry’s the original founder of T Burt butchers, having started as a Saturday boy in his father’s shop at the tender age of 12.
Trained at Smithfield Butchery College in London, he has a valuable wealth of experience of the older, now quite fashionable cuts. There’s not much he doesn’t know about meat and the butchery industry as a whole.

Neil Wratten

Transport Manager

After a long and successful career in the pharmaceuticals industry, Neil wanted something a little less stressful and joined us in 2014 as transport manager. He makes sure all our vehicles are properly maintained and cleaned and that deliveries arrive at the right time. You may see Neil out and about as he quite often likes a trip out in one of the vans!


Our purpose-built, state-of-the-art premises are some of the most up-to-date and advanced in the whole of the south of England.

Our cutting facility has dedicated areas for red, white and game meat and our FSA approval (number UK2541 EC) means we’re kept up to date about – and comply with – all changes in the law.

Vehicle Fleet

We operate our own fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles which are all serviced regularly and changed on a 3-5 year cycle where possible to maintain efficiency.

Every vehicle is tracked with live updates, so we can pinpoint a van’s position down to a couple of metres and can see exactly when deliveries are being made. All our vehicles are equipped with data loggers that record the internal temperature throughout the whole journey, so you know your produce has been stored at the right temperature at all times.

For customers outside our delivery area, we supply via our dedicated chilled haulage company Nagel Langdon’s.
