About Us

HG Blake is an independent family owned multi-species abattoir based in Norfolk.

HG Blake is proud to supply the very finest British beef, lamb and pork to retail butcher shops and meat wholesalers nationwide.

HG Blake source produce directly from Norfolk farmers, and work with them to maintain the highest standards of animal husbandry and animal welfare.

We’re only as good as our producers!

In order to consistently deliver premium quality, flavoursome and tender meat, with the traceability and assurances that our customers expect, HG Blake works hard to maintain strong relationships with all our farmers and producers. In fact, we actively encourage them to visit when they bring in stock, so that we can share our knowledge and experience gained over 60 years of processing animals, and learn more about their particular farming methods.
Still an independently family run business, HG Blake was established in 1938 by the late Hilton Blake, and is now Chaired by his widow, Jane Blake, and managed on a day-to-day basis by Andrew Clarke.

Managing Director, Andrew Clarke, has been associated with the meat trade all his life. Father, Mayhew Clarke, was and still is a livestock buyer for HG Blake, and through his experience, Andrew has received a good foundation on which to build.

Overseen by Jane Blake, Andrew, and his committed team of over 50 staff, take the process from field to fridge. Combining traditional British butchery craftsmanship with highest standards of animal welfare, the team can provide slaughter and dressing services on behalf of farmers and smallholders for as few as one animal.
