Margaret Boanas

I have spent all my working life in the Meat trade and seen enormous changes in the last forty years. Originally starting as an assistant buyer in the manufacturing industry I moved to Smithfield in 1978 and worked in International Trade until retiring at the end of 2017.

I am Chairman of International Meat Trade Association (IMTA) , Vice President of European Meat & Livestock Trading Union (UECBV) and a Warden of The Worshipful Company of Butchers.

Married with two daughters, the combination of a husband who is an enthusiastic amateur BBQ chef, my access to quality meat and daughters who enjoy social dining leads to happy family life in Southeast London.
