On the meat counter, there are prime cuts of free range pork, Aberdeen Angus beef and Farmhouse lamb, as well as specialities such as rack of lamb.
Aberdeen Angus beef has been available from the Waitrose meat counter for more than 10 years and was chosen because it is a breed that is native to the UK. It is known for the marbling that appears in the meat. This marbling enables the meat to retain a higher level of succulent flavour and tenderness.
