Alternative Meats is to begin supplying its products to the food service industry, it has been reported.
The Shropshire-based company has agreed to provide Blakemores in Wolverhampton with ostrich and venison meat, according to Food and Drink Towers.
Alternative Meats has been dealing in unusual foods such as crocodile, bison, ostrich and zebra for several years but this agreement marks the first time that it has been made available for food service.
It is also in discussion with Herefordshire-based Troughles Fine Foods, a supplier of foods to over 250 pubs and restaurants across Wales and the West Midlands.
Operating out of a farm building and run by Rachel Godwin and Jeanette Edgar, Alternative Meats has previously provided foods for television shows such as Ready, Steady Cook.
In 2006 the BBC reported that a crocodile farm was being opened in East Anglia, with farmer Andy Johnson predicting a surge in demand of the low fat meat.
