Opening Up Inspiration

Updated: Oct 6

We know that many of our customers are yet to reopen, so we've compiled a few tips and insights that we think might help.


Many of our customers have opted to reopen with simplified menus to cater to new social distancing requirements in kitchens and to minimise cross contamination of ingredients.


We've noticed an increasing desire for menu staples and home comforts, with many of our customers going back to basics. Our J.Browns Craft Butchers has experienced particularly high demand as our customers seek out high quality at good value. In 2019, 3 of our top selling 20 lines were from our craft butchery - this year that number has increased to 8, with burgers and steaks proving most popular.


This August J.Browns steak sales were up by 73% on ugust last year. Similarly, sales of our J.Browns Angus Thin 6oz Burger (19762) are up by more than 30%.
