Montrose Meats & Smokehouse enjoys a long, proud history of serving people who care about eating good food.
Its humble beginnings date back to the 1950’s and since 1962, two families have owned and operated the business: the Earneys and Landells. Ian Landell served as an apprentice under Jack Earney, and Rob Earney – the current proprietor – served as apprentice under Ian Landell.
Throughout this time, both families embraced the concept that craftsmanship, quality meat and strong relationships were essential ingredients to their business.
Montrose Meats embraced innovation with its craft very early on and were pioneers in the use of marinades and small goods production. Ian Landell’s German background gave him a good start in the development of premium Australian hams, bacon and cooked sausage.
In 1983, Rob and Veronica Earney bought the business from Ian and Jenny Landell, and remain the proprietors today.
Over the last four decades of Rob and Veronica’s ownership many changes have occurred. Sawdust no longer covers the floors and recent shop renovations have brought food production to industry best standards.
Montrose Meats & Smokehouse now carries a diverse range of products, including fresh meat cuts, pan and oven ready meals, pre-cooked wholesome meals and a range of unique home produced small goods and deli lines. The small goods have proudly received multiple awards, including the best bacon and cabana in Victoria.
And Montrose Meats & Smokehouse still supply Rob’s Father’s ‘Jacko’s rissoles ‘ as a regular stock item in today’s display, using the same recipe created by Jack back in 1962.
Pride in the traditional craft of butchery, providing consistent quality and maintaining strong relationships remain at the heart of Montrose Meats & Smokehouse.
