A meaty congratulations to Two Rivers owner/president Jason Pleym, who was recognised in the current issue of Business In Vancouver as being one of the BC’s Top Forty Under 40 business stars. Jason and his crew supply top drawer cuts to Vancouver’s very best restaurants, and he was the only individual in the food trade so honoured this year. Not bad for a fellow who used to live in a school bus down by the Kicking Horse River!
We’ve invited award-winning Two Rivers Specialty Meats to join our GOODS section as a recommended artisan supplier. They’re now proud members of Scout, and as such we’ll be posting their news and hosting a page for them on our curated list of independent goodnesses. We’d like to take this chance to thank them for their support of Scout, and for making BC a decidedly more delicious place to live.

About Two Rivers Specialty Meats
Two Rivers Specialty Meats is a purveyor of fine local meats including beef, chicken, pork, duck, venison, elk, game birds and much more that are free of antibiotics, hormones and chemical feed additives. In addition to providing the finest protein products available, our goal is to strengthen the connection between producers and consumers. The Two Rivers difference: is an ideal that we share with our producers, who are committed to raising animals ethically and naturally, while farming the land sustainably. For us and our partner farmers, sustainability isn’t just a catch phrase; it’s a way of life. The result is in the way our products taste: fresh, rich, natural flavours with the added benefit of better health and animal welfare. We want to foster a deep understanding amongst chefs, retailers, restaurants, consumers and the local farms that provide our products. We believe that people should know where their food is coming from, and that it was produced ethically and naturally. We started in January 2008 featuring Pemberton Meadows Natural Beef and have grown to represent over 20 committed farms, ranches, producers and families including Sloping Hill Pork, Thiessen Poultry and Bar M Ranch Lamb. In addition to processing custom cuts and dry age products, our team also crafts an amazing line of fresh house made sausages and charcuterie using the finest local meats without adding fillers or artificial flavouring. Our specialized products can be found at select retailers and is served by many restaurant partners around BC. Please contact us for details. We are committed to sourcing the best local meats possible for our customers.
