As part of National Butchers Week ITV News Central has been talking to staff at Walter Smith butchers. They have 17 stores across the region.
They are reporting a significant increase in the number of customers coming into their stores, which they attribute to the horsemeat scandal.
Women butchers are now also a key part of their business.
