Hudson Meats

Hudson Meats first opened in Surry Hills in August 2007 by Colin Holt & Jeff Winfield.

Hudson Meats follows the “Paddock to Plate” philosophy and the Hudson team specialise in sourcing regional produce and frequently liaise directly with the farmers.

At Hudson’s you will be able to find Cape Grim Grass Fed Beef from Tasmania, Dry Aged Beef, Lamb from Cowra, Pork from Byron Bay, Barossa Chickens, Italian Prosciuttos, Spanish Jamón and Artisan handmade Salamis.

In November 2008, the Cammeray store was opened and 12 months later in November 2009, the Lane Cove store was opened in the new Lane Cove Market Square complex.  In November 2011, the fourth Hudson Meats store was opened in Mosman.  In August 2013, Hudson Meats grew again and opened a store in Toorak, Victoria.  2015 saw yet another store to join the growing Hudson Meats fold with a new store opening in Drummoyne, NSW.

At all of the stores, you will find all the same quality products that Hudson Meats is known for.
