NSA Make More of Mutton

Supporting the UK Quality Mutton Supply Chain

A favourite of the Duke of Wellington and Mrs Beeton, mutton was at one time more popular in the UK than beef, and was eaten in both palaces and cottages alike, across the country.

The purpose of this NSA project is to assist existing and potential producers to expand the market for quality mutton, and to make it once again available to all, as it was as recently as 50 years ago.

This website is a resource for those involved in the quality mutton supply chain. Information will be accumulated here about the latest research on meat quality, and an opportunity for both producers and buyers of quality mutton to make contact.

Producers' Guide
