We have changed our name to Euro Gourmet Meats!  There's a bit of work to do yet changing everything and advising everyone - including this website, obviously, so please be patient while I work my way through it all. Thanks!


Euro Gourmet Meats - Crafted in Canterbury

We are craftsmen artisan butchers providing a unique service to our customers. We supply retail and wholesale (restaurants and other retailers) fresh and processed meats with a key emphasis on quality and top presentation.

cressylogoEuro Gourmet Meats is the preferred processor and supplier of award winning Cressy Farm free-farmed pork, so all our fresh pork, bacon, ham and most of our smallgoods are from Cressy Farm pork. The best quality from paddock to plate!

We also sell lamb, hogget, wild venison, goat and rabbit, Westwood free-range chicken and beef, aged on the bone.

Some information about our main smallgood products is given in the Products page.

  • Top quality bacon, ham and European smallgoods, all made by hand in our premises.
  • Specialise in traditional salamis, beersticks and chorisos.
  • Everything gluten free.
  • No premixes used, all our own recipes.
  • All our sausages are 94-99% real meat.  

While our butchery in Westminster St is a retail shop it is also where all our smallgoods are made.  In July 2013 we also purchased a second butchery at 7 Normans Rd, so a full range of fresh meats, plus our renowned smallgoods are now also available there.  We also attend the Christchurch Farmers Market every Saturday and the Oxford Farmers Market on the first Sunday of each month.  A range of fresh pork and sausages, bacon, ham and many of our smallgoods, plus the aged beef, lamb and venison are available there, for locations and dates see the list on our Cressy Farm website.  We also attend occasional other markets, particularly in the December rush.

For those of you who are unable to get to our shop or the markets, you can order via phone or email.  We can deliver our great products throughout NZ!

We can also deliver meat packs to your door in a limited area of Christchurch on Friday afternoons.  This is a limited service which will complement our on-line shop and will grow as demand grows.

Many of our key products (fresh pork, bacon, ham, salami etc) are now available for purchase through Lucy's on-line market for the Rolleston/Lincoln/West Melton area - they provide a weekly delivery service.
