About us



A family business built on hard work, honesty, respect and excellence

PETER ANDREWS SNR

Peter Andrews Snr, founder of Andrews Meat, arrived in Australia in 1951 as a 13 year old boy unable to speak English or spell his own name.

Within three years Peter had already demonstrated the work ethic that is synonymous with Andrews Meat today, by saving enough money to purchase his first business, a cafe in Trangie, NSW.

It was his exposure to farming life in NSW’s west that led him to discover his true passion, meat. In 1960 he opened his first butcher shop in Paddington, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, and thus the Andrews Meat business was born.

Much loved by locals, Peter began to look for ways to grow the business and saw an opportunity to expand into wholesale. He worked closely with nearby restaurants to understand their needs and help them choose the most efficient cuts of meat for their menu’s.

He quickly earned the trust from his retail and wholesale customers who appreciated his integrity, commitment to customer service and his high regard for product quality and consistency.

PETER ANDREW’S SONS: PETER JNR, MICHAEL & HARRY

Peter’s son’s involvement in the family business began in the 90’s and it was from this time the business really took a more focused direction into food service. The business model at the time was predominantly export and wholesale.

At the time the export market was volatile, Peter Jnr (youngest of boys) believed that a stronger focus on food service would provide a range of opportunities and a steady growth path for the business. Working alongside butchers during the day and canvassing new clients into the evenings, Peter Jnr soon developed a network of clients across all areas of food service.

The strategic decision to acquire another meat wholesaler in 1998 provided access to new markets and sales growth further cementing the company’s emerging position as a major supplier.

Peter’s vision and drive were shared by his brothers Harry and Michael who provided the necessary administrative and operational support to advance the business. Together they have built what is regarded today as one of Australia’s leading food service meat suppliers.

Underpinning the success of the business are the same fundamental values that Peter Andrews SNR built it on – hard work, integrity, service, quality and people.

The management team and staff are passionate about what they do and the long history of employment for many is testament to the culture and family spirit of the business.

Andrews Meat continues to look to the future. Drawing on the company’s progressive thinking, innovative products and superior service, there are plans in place to capitalise on market opportunities both in Australia and overseas.

PARTNERSHIP WITH JBS AUSTRALIA

In July 2014 Andrews Meat formed a partnership agreement with the country’s largest and most successful processor, exporter and feed lot operator, JBS Australia.

Sharing similar cultural and business values to Andrews Meat the partnership will assist in bridging the gap in the supply chain, as well as providing a more secure and consistent supply base for customers. It will also drive opportunities for expansion and growth in the value added and prepared foods segments in Australia and overseas.

The family, together with their loyal team, look forward to continuing to serve the Australian and international food service sector.
