David Morris MP recently visited Altham's catering butchers on White Lund which has been trading in the area for 150 years. Altham's is one of the oldest and largest family owned butchers in the Country and supplies meat to restaurants, pub chains, hotels, sports venues and some supermarkets.
Speaking after the visit David Morris MP said:
' I was delighted to meet with James and Rick Altham, great grandchildren of the founder, to hear about their exciting plans for the future. It is great to see a business steeped in history have exciting plans for the future to employ more people locally and further contribute to the local economy.
I saw a fantastic ready meal facility which had just been built to start making meals in the next week or two and also I saw plans for a new site they have just bought to develop an even larger factory facility.
I am delighted that this traditional family business is going from strength to strength and look forward to seeing the new factory when it is completed.'
