Essex Meats (Brilanka Limited) is a family run business owned by Iain Mcleod and brother Malcolm Mcleod and brother in law Terry Copsey. All three family members learnt their trade at the famous Smithfield Market and it is there that the origins of Essex Meats began. The three meat traders had already established successful businesses during the early seventies within the market and in 1978, formed Essex Meats, thus combining their expertise and experience within the fresh and frozen meat industry.
