Woodheads is one of the best know names in the British meat industry, with a history stretching back over 100 years. Today Woodheads is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wm Morrison Supermarkets PLC, having become one of our first vertically integrated suppliers in 1991.
We are still the only major supermarket to own it’s own abattoir and meat processing operations, giving us unique traceability and control over our supply chain. And crucially, having our own meat business means we are the only big supermarkets to buy cattle, sheep and pigs direct from British Farmers, with our own team of specialist livestock buyers.
Today we have three sites in Lancashire, Aberdeenshire and Lincolnshire. Together they process over 3,400 cattle, 15,000 lambs and 28,000 pigs per week. Click on the links below to learn more.
