Matt Birtwistle

Meet our Commercial Director, Matt Birtwistle, as his name would suggest he’s got butchery in his blood; his family has been a part of the meat industry for 4 generations. This proud family history and his passion for success make Matt a real asset to both the company and our customers.

Matt grew up in the meat industry, visiting farms with his grandad, going to cattle auctions and spending school holidays down at the abattoir. This gives Matt a real understanding and knowledge of every aspect of the meat industry and makes him extremely adept at managing all aspects of the business with a strong focus on operational management and sales.

“Passion and people are our key drivers and they run through this business like no other. Whenever we take people for a tour of our site, they can’t help but be impressed by just how dedicated and passionate our team is.”

Matt is a key figure in our account management team and he loves the buzz of working with new and existing customers, whether it’s the thrill of mobilising new business or servicing clients who’ve been working with us for over 10 years.

He admits it can be challenging at times, meeting the sometimes eclectic needs of our customers, but as a result Birtwistles offers a service that exceeds our competitors because we’re being challenged by our customers to challenge ourselves every single day.

Matt’s particularly proud of the team here and believes that the passion of our people is the main reason for our continued success. The business began with a philosophy to surround ourselves with good, passionate people and that’s still evident today. Matt feels that this helps to attract customers and guarantees the highest level of service.
