John Marshall & Son
John Marshall & Son is a third generation business, with succeeding generations adding to what was a firm foundation. The current owner is David Marshall who has been in charge of the business for over twenty five years.
During this time he has completely renovated and modernised the premises, bringing them up to a very high standard as is necessary in these times to ensure that excellent standards of hygiene can be easily maintained.
The front shop has a custom built refrigerated display which enables all goods to be kept in ideal conditions. There are additionally two large chills, one of which is capable of holding fourteen sides of beef. This enables large quantities of beef to be held, to allow the meat to mature fully and provide the consumer with a tender and tasty alternative to the majority of beef sold today.
Sausages have always been a top seller, with quantities of over 1200lbs (545kg) being made and sold every week. In addition Black pudding is a popular product with over 120lbs (55kg) being sold every week. In recent years steak pie production has grown from small beginnings to dozens every week and production of scotch pies, sausage rolls and bridies have also increased since their inception some years ago.
John Marshall & Son are situated in the town of Johnstone (see the map) which is near Glasgow Airport. Johnstone is a medium sized town whose roots go back to heavy engineering and the production of flax, threads and shoelaces.
Sadly many of these industries are no longer in existence, however new businesses have established themselves, no doubt due to the ease of transport to Glasgow and the West of Scotland.
Many years ago, the owner of the shop visited markets in person and bought his livestock directly. As time went on the numbers of markets and indeed the numbers of livestock going through the markets decreased. We now use a Purchasing Agent who sources our cattle, lamb and pork directly from farms, which helps us maintain our high standards of quality and traceability. All Beef, Lamb, and Pork sold by us is sourced in Scotland. See our Products page.
