Ignition meats Kittow needs


Ignition, the Truro-based provider of vehicle and asset finance for UK SMEs, has arranged finance for a thriving Cornish butcher, assisting with the purchase of a range of new equipment.

James Kittow Butcher & Grazier at Kilhallon, is a fifth-generation family butchers, first established in 1880. Today, it is a modern, progressive food processing business, specialising in the production of raw meat cuts for catering and retail outlets, as well as providing a delivery service direct to local consumers.

A long-standing customer of Ignition, James Kittow recently purchased a new skin pack machine, a set of solar panels and a new touch screen terminal for the business.

James Kittow commented: “Our new skin pack machine keeps the produce even fresher, resulting in a longer shelf life. The presentation is also more attractive and eye-catching, and has already led to increased sales and orders in retail outlets.

“Similarly, we are already seeing the cost-saving benefits from installing new solar panels.  We had some existing solar panels, but identified a vacant roof space which could accommodate 150 more. This will help considerably with the cost refrigeration, which continues to be a significant business outlay.”
