McMurchie's, a traditional family butcher, offers a wide variety of local meats, homemade pies, and handcrafted sausages. Established in 1968 by James Albert McMurchie, the Durham-based shop earned membership in the prestigious Butchers Q Guild, known for its excellence in quality. After James's retirement in 1994, his son John took over and expanded the business, adding a kitchen, bakery, and delicatessen. Using RATIONAL cooking systems networked by ConnectedCooking, the team efficiently prepares stews, soups, casseroles, pies, and more. By switching to RATIONAL systems, they reduced costs by 15%, allowing them to produce up to 100-200 ready meals and thousands of pies daily.
