About Us

Shan Moulder, is a third generation butcher from South Africa.  At the young age of 13 Shan already knew that he wanted to be a butcher and learn the great skills and specialised knowledge required.  He started at a young age helping in his dads shop (Alberton Meat Market which was established in 1979) on weekends and in school holidays, watching and learning from his dad and grandfather doing what they do best.  Shan brings along with him his grandfather’s boerewors and pork sausage recipe that originated in 1943, as well as making biltong the same way in which his grandfather taught him.  Both of these family recipes are a huge part of the success of his dad’s shop which is still going strong.

Shan had 13 years of butchery experience before coming to NZ in 2010, where he started his career at NOSH food market.  Working his way up to butcher manager and managing 5 of the NOSH butchery departments. 

In October 2014 Shan embarked on the journey of opening his own shop which has been running ever since and proud to share “THE MEAT ROOM” with you.

Shan takes pride in what he does and is always willing to share his knowledge and passion of good quality meat and a few cooking tips.  Shan and the team are all about; tradition, passion and quality and can’t wait to build more relationships with customers and provide them with the best quality and service that he and the team can.
