Together For Success
"At Total Foodservice we are a family owned business with five generations of foodservice experience. We have always had a passion for meeting our customers needs and finding new products.
"As a local company with strong family values we don’t want to compete with the butcher down the road, but at the same time we want to grow and strive to become a truly “One Stop Shop” able to deliver everything a caterer will need.
"In Grassroots we have found a local business with values similar to ours. It’s all about exceptional product from a specialist in traditional, fine art butchery combined with the capability and technology to produce the volumes required by our customers. By partnering with Grassroots I am positive we can offer a quality fresh meat which is consistent in size and packaged well.
"We are impressed by the accreditations held by Grassroots, mirroring our own Quality Policy and Sustainable ethos." Simon Howarth, managing director.

Grassroots is born from a long lineage of farming and butchery talent in the heart of Lancashire. This knowledge and experience, built up over three generations, comes together today to offer customers a butchery service steeped in tradition, yet meeting the demands of our fast-paced, modern age.
Hailing from a passionate farming family, with a strong commitment to rearing British breeds using traditional pasture-fed methods, Grassroots understand the true value of the journey from farm to fork.
Their family started out farming in the 1970s in the picturesque Ribble Valley before traversing over the hill into the equally stunning rural setting of Pendle.
Leaning on their working knowledge of the farming industry, their grandad and dad opened up a butcher’s shop in the 80s and soon three generations were cutting, dicing and slicing behind the butcher’s block.
Decades of experience within a family-run business taught they everything they know and gave them a good understanding of the industry ‘do and don’ts’; demonstrated to them in a blunt Lancashire manner,
Grassroots learned to respect the traditional working techniques and standards employed by their elders; and they maintain true to these standards to this
Over the past years, they have developed their skills and knowledge to build and grow Grassroots.
Grassroots is committed to the welfare of all animals used in the production of its foods and adheres to stringent sourcing policies.
It is vital that we provide our customers with the most natural and flavoursome products possible, using the purest farming methods and remaining true to the traditional farming and butchery patterns of our past.
We hand pick our select group of farming partners and go to great lengths to ensure that the farm to fork journey of our products is traceable throughout. Our sourcing team insists that high standards of animal welfare are met and maintained at all stages of the animal’s life – on the farm, during transportation and at the place of slaughter. How our farming partners look after our animals is important to us, which is why we only work with producers and suppliers that adhere to, and share our commitment to animal welfare.
We predominantly partner with farmers in the Lancashire and Yorkshire areas and we are proud to say that we have working relationships spanning decades. In this way, we can confidently confirm that the quality of our products are maintained and best practice is carried out at all times; meeting our own exacting standards as well as those of industry regulatory bodies. Regular site visits and farm audits are carried to support continuous improvement in animal health and welfare standards throughout our whole supply chain. And we look ourselves to farming regulatory bodies for guidance and advice in order that we maintain a clear, long term strategy for continual improvement. We hold FSA, Red Tractor and RSPCA Assured (formerly Freedom Foods) accreditations and work hard to maintain the standards laid out, including traceability, food safety and hygiene, animal welfare and environmental protection.
