James Burden Limited has been trading within Smithfield Market for over 40 years and has witnessed significant change during this time. As part of our ongoing investment program we are pleased to announce the completion of the refurbishment of shop 29.
With the large number of traders within the market selling a diverse range of meat it has become essential to have clear product information on view at all times to prospective customers. This refurbishment included the installation of illuminated sign boards detailing product ranges above the cold cabinets at the front of the shop and is proving particularly useful at peak times when demands on the traders time dictates they cannot speak with everyone as they pass.
The stand-out display signs also allow the shop to be more readily located from a greater distance within the market and it is anticipated that the success of this refurbishment will see similar work being carried out on other James Burden shops within Smithfield.
The improvements also reinforce James Burdens long-term strategy of being a major force within Smithfield and come at a time when they have recently been recognised in The Sunday Times International Track 200, the league table of Britain’s private companies with the fastest growing international sales. The league table, sponsored by HSBC, which supports British companies growing their business in the UK and globally, positioned The Burden Group at number 20, with an annual international sales growth of over 100 percent.
