Mayhew Bros [Ember] Ltd
United Kingdom, United Kingdom
The meat industry is having a makeover: it’s no longer as black and white as ‘Meat: Bad & Plant: Good’. Ember are here to claim back meat for the good guys. With a narrative defined by factory farming, intensive agriculture and race to the bottom standards, Ember are determined to give good meat the story it deserves. Founded in 2017 by farming brothers, Jack and Harry Mayhew, Ember started as a simple biltong brand but has evolved to be so much more. Shocked by the murky nature of the world of meat, Ember set out on the path towards a new mission: to end factory farming in the meat industry for good. Since then they’ve been the first to get regenerative beef onto supermarket shelves, and got everyday people eating - and loving - wild venison (possibly the UKs most sustainable meat) for the first time. The curtain is rightly coming down on cheap, cruel and unethical meat, but the future is bright for meat done right and Ember are shining a light on that.
