Speaking about his new venture, Nick Passmore, Owner of the Cotswold Meat Company, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to announce that Tom and I have purchased Slatters Butchers, a business which has been at the heart of the village of Chadlington for over 100 years – and we very much intend to keep it this way!
“The decision to purchase Slatters comes during a period of continued investment and growth for the Cotswold Meat Company; and at a time when we’re fortunate to see our success continue to go from strength to strength.
