Paul the driving force behind the team at Ashburton Meats, began his involvement in the industry in 1989. Starting as a clean-up kid out the back of the shop, Paul has seen the evolution of Ahsburton Meats to what it is today.
Paul is now the passionate owner and prides himself on providing customers with a truly enjoyable shopping experience. With a wide ranging knowledge about all produce, Paul is able to pass on this knowledge to customers, from cooking tips to cuts of meats.
Paul’s passion was to design a range of condiments to accompany the meat at Ashburton Meats. This saw him create Paul’s Fine Foods, a range of condiments perfect to accompany any type of meat. The new range of spice rubs and sauces can be found in the Ashburton Meats store.

I started working at Ashburton Meats in 2017, I have been on and off in the meat industry since 2011 but found my calling when I started here. Everyday I learn new things and continue to grow my knowledge in Butchery. In 2019, I tried out for the Australian Steelers as an apprentice and ended up coming 1st reserve for the Australian team. I love playing darts and one day hope to take my passion for it overseas to play in the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC).
I also have 3 amazing boys that I can’t wait to watch learn and grow together.
I started at Ashburton meats in 2015, as a clean up kid during my schooling at De La Salle College. After graduating in 2017, I then completed a degree in Biomedicine at Latrobe University. Once completing my degree in 2020 I began my apprenticeship at Ashburton Meats.
I have been lucky enough to represent my country apart of the Australian Butcher Team, where I competed in the World Butchers Challenge in Sacramento, California. I was ultimately crowned World Champion Apprentice Butcher.

Hi, I’m Kylie. I started at Ashburton Meats in 2017. I started my working career at Foodtown Ashburton and since then have been employed in a number of butcher shops. Over the years I have continued to learn more of the meat industry and butchering with the team.
I did my high school years in Ashwood College and Ashwood was where I was raised. I love watching the V8 Supercars and have been to Bathurst many times to watch the races.
