Tom Jones

Having achieved a Foundation Apprenticeship in Butchery Retail Skills, Tom is now working towards an apprenticeship in Butchery Skills whilst also running a shop and employing two apprentices. The third generation of his family to run the butcher’s business, he is passionate about the industry and promoting butchery as an interesting and rewarding career for young people.

He has been selected to represent Wales and won numerous competitions such as the Welsh Young Butcher Competition 2012. And to add to this Tomi is already somewhat of a local celebrity, having been filmed this year for S4C’s ‘Cegin Bryn’ with chef Bryn Williams and cbbc’s ‘Disaster Chefs’ with Joe Swash.

"Winning this award is one of the greatest achievements of my life so far, it just proves that hard work and dedication gets you to where you want to be."
