HG Blake takes pride in only supplying locally sourced British Pork.
HG Blake takes great pride in only supplying locally sourced British Pork. Over sixty years, we have strived to identify and partner with a number of pig producers within the Eastern region who share our values and deliver a superior product. From our trusted, traceable and sustainable source, we are able to supply pig carcases, primal cuts and pork trim.
We work with local farms to ensure the finest pork is produced
HG Blake is proud of its ability to buy pork sourced from local farms. We work closely with the producers, sharing our knowledge and experience gained over 60 years of processing animals to ensure that the finest pork is produced.
We also offer cutting services to smallholders, to which we can share our knowledge and expertise on methods and welfare to maintain the highest quality standards we strive for at HG Blake.
We have a strict selection process for our pork to guarantee quality and consistent results. All our carcasses are individually serial-numbered and slap marks are read and recorded. We use MLCSL classification/grading equipment to provide independent backfat measurement and the lean meat percentage calculations.

In order to maintain membership, HG Blake is subjected to a planned annual inspection, and one unannounced inspection each year to ensure HG Blake meets their strict Welfare and Traceability standards.
Producer Case Study
Pig farmer, Richard Lilwall, has been breeding and rearing pigs on the family farm for over 40 years. Through knowledge passed down through the generations, Richard has control of every stage of the breeding and rearing process, right through to the end, so can guarantee full traceability.
Our philosophy is simple: “We control the entire process. I can tell when the pig was born, what it was fed, the whole process.”
The pigs are housed in deep litter straw yards and fed on a wheat and barley feed ration that is milled on the farm. The combination delivers a high quality, succulent and tasty meat that is hard to beat.
The herd is managed and monitored by British Quality Assured Pork (Red Tractor).
For East Anglia’s growing community of Smallholders and Artisan producers, we can cater for as few as one animal.
