New chair announced for Q Guild of Butchers

David Lishman of award-winning Yorkshire butcher Lishman’s of Ilkley has been announced as the new chair of the Q Guild of Butchers

David takes over the role of chair from Mark Turnbull of Turnbull's of Alnwick.

The Q Guild is a seal of excellence marking over 120 of Britain’s best butchers. It represents an elite group of the finest quality independent meat retailers in Britain and is synonymous with skills, craftsmanship and quality.

Members are based across the UK, serving £5 million worth of outstanding meat and related products to over a quarter of a million UK consumers every week.

David said, “I’m honoured to take on this role at the Q Guild of Butchers. My own business has been a member for almost 20 years and I’ve truly valued the guild as a way of sharing knowledge, ideas and experience. Joining a group of like-minded, passionate butchers has allowed my business to continually aim high, and of course, the Q Guild is all about recognising and driving up quality. It’s a genuinely inspiring group.

"As I start my role as chair, I’d like to focus on using our network of regional meetings to help support members in the guild. This is such a worthwhile forum for sharing experience and it’s crucial that all our members are able to tap into this and receive value from their membership.”
