Moose Mountain Meats
Meet your Butcher!
MMMC is a provincially inspected co-operative abbatoire owned by 105 shareholders and governed by a board of elected volunteers.
It came into being because of a need in the community and the hard work of a number of concerned local citizens.
The privately owned butcher shop that had operated for many years in Wawota closed down in 2008, leaving area livestock producers with fewer options to have their animals processed for their own use or sale to their customers. Within the region other abbatroires were already operating at near full capacity, and several were closing their doors due to aging facilities or retiring owners. This greatly reduced the opportunity to have local product processed locally.
In this environment a group of area producers and business people met, set a plan and worked very hard.
Because of their efforts, on January 31st 2012, MMMC Ltd. opened its doors for business. MMMC Provides three key services to it’s customers.
1. Custom slaughter and processing for all livestock without feathers.
2. Custom processing of wild game for hunters.
3. A retail shop offering chilled and frozen meats, as well as many other great frozen items!
At MMMC they aim to be competitive with other area meat counters! They provide access to locally grown product. Like us they support the community by providing local jobs, local service to area livestock producers and financial support for local groups and events.
