Pete’s Chop Shop also caters to dietary needs including coeliac, gluten free, dairy free, paleo and keto. “I find a lot of people are sick of the quality of mince and sausages,” Pete said.
“We’re not just a generic butcher. We take pride in all our products, especially our quality mince and sausages. The beef we’re getting at the moment is raised 4.2km from our back door, and our pork, beef and chicken are all free range, with no hormones. We make our own sausages. We provide game meat too – crocodile, emu meat, kangaroo tail – things you can’t buy elsewhere. We also have the best range of totally natural pet food in the South West. We provide old-fashioned service in a modern age.”
What do BHR Papalia do for you?
Pete said he started doing his tax returns with BHR Papalia at the age of 16.
“After being with them for 30 odd years, I stayed with them once I started a business,” he said.
“They do all of our accounting, and you can always ring up and ask questions.”
Pete said the business had transferred to Xero within the last two years, and he found it great to use. “The support is always there,” he said.
What have been your highlights of the past year?
Pete’s Chop Shop has always done well in the King Sausage South West Division – and last year, they polled second and third in the state.
“It’s great to be rewarded for our sausage making efforts,” Pete said.
Another exciting development in the past 18 months has been rearranging the shop to cater for the rising popularity of smoked and barbecued meat. “We’re sourcing local rubs and sauces for it that are Australian made,” Pete said.
