A Few Words About Us

Calder Millerfield was founded by John Calder in 1961. The company has grown from fairly modest beginnings, into a premium quality meat product manufacturer supplying the retail and wholesale markets.
Calder Millerfield was incorporated in 1961 when our founder, John Calder, commenced trading from premises in Millerfield Road in Dalmarnock in the east end of Glasgow.
A butcher to trade, John Calder saw an opportunity to expand and develop the business he already had through his two shops in the city’s south side.

How We Started
In the beginning, the company combined butchery and bakery goods and supplied a diverse range of customers via sales vans, and through the factory shop, including chip shops, cafes and work canteens.
The chip shop supply side of the business soon became the major contributor to turnover, with good relations developing between Calder Millerfield and the ‘Scottish Italian’ community who ran the majority of chip shops.

Presently, through our own fleet of sales vans and numerous agents, we cover the majority of Scotland and into the north of England. The chip shop business is as important today as it was in helping to establish Calder Millerfield back in the 1960’s and 1970’s.

In the mid 1980’s, we diversified into supplying supermarkets with The co-operative being the first to stock a wide range of our products. You can currently find a variety of our products – both branded and own label – stocked by The co-operative and Scotmid.
We are a family business with strong traditional values. From director level, where the Kyle’s and Findlater’s have been involved since day one, down through our strong purposeful management team and highly skilled and experienced workforce. We are well equipped to stay at the forefront of
quality meat product manufacturing.

The Future
In 2011, we celebrated 50 years in business – here’s to the next 50!
