Welcome to Donald Russell

Hans BaumannHans Baumann:
Executive Chairman, Donald Russell

It's been forty years since I left my home in Switzerland as a young man looking for an adventure. I travelled to Britain equipped only with the values of my Swiss childhood; hard work, a keen eye for quality and detail, and of course a passion for wonderful food.

Perhaps then it's no surprise that I've devoted my working life to producing the best gourmet products possible, which I've achieved in my twenty years with Donald Russell.

A small butcher that accomplishes big things, we listen to our customers and their feedback has proved invaluable towards gaining their trust and fulfilling their needs whilst moving with the times, plus it has helped us make new customers along the way.

Holding a Royal Warrant, an accolade awarded by Her Majesty The Queen recognising us as an official supplier to the Royal household, we had a strong base to build upon. What we came up with was unique, Donald Russell Direct, a delivery service making available to customers at home the same quality that our restaurant buyers enjoy.

This part of Scotland is known as the Larder of Europe because of the astonishing quality of local food resources like beef, lamb and wild game. It's been my dream to bring these products home so my fellow Swiss can appreciate how good they are, so I'm especially excited for you to try these products from Scotland, the country that I now consider as my second home.

And so confident are we that our traditional methods of rearing, selection, maturing and butchery all equally contribute to the best meat you've ever tasted, we've shown our commitment by guaranteeing it.
