Pork Collar Chops :
Our expert butchers have cut these nice n’ thick because they will hold more natural juices giving the meat a better flavour. The texture of the Pork Collar is quite coarse because it has hard working muscles throughout, this is perfect for longer cooks at lower temperatures. The fibrous texture of the meat has the best flavour of all the pork & this is the larger part of the Boston Butt that is the preferred cut of choice for low & slow cooking.
The fat marbling will render down during cooking, this helps the fibrous texture breakdown becoming very tender to fall apart easily on your plate. Many people over cook pork & it can become dry, the marbled fat will help guarantee better results at home with these.
The 20 mm Pork Collar Chops are 240-grams each & give a generous sized portion that will satisfy most appetites. These are great when left in the oven for a longer cook, gently simmering in their own juices, & making a quick midweek tasty meal by searing these off in the pan with simple everyday spices.

We have vacuum sealed 4 Pork Collar Chops per pack making them easy to store in our clear recyclable pouches. Each pack is just under 1 kilo & has over 900-grams of meat inside that will feed a family of 4 easily. The packaging will protect the meat when stored in the fridge or freezer, when being delivered to your door & when bringing up to temperature before cooking.
All our meats are produced in temperature controlled, clean, safe environments that produce the best results for freshness & flavour. The speed at which the Pork Collar Chops are cut & packed means they have little exposure to any natural bacteria in the air giving them a longer shelf life. The low temperatures prevent the meat from losing any natural juices keeping them fresh from the moment they are cut.
All our pork is frozen to -18°C immediately keeping them in perfect condition.
A healthy diet has to have a daily intake of essential vitamins, minerals & protein, our quality pork is a great source all of these. By trimming the excess fat from the outside & leaving the intramuscular fat, they are better for you. The marbled fat will render down for the flavour & the excess can be drained off before serving making a tasty healthy dish that is not bland!
Our choice of pork is something we have carefully considered, as we find this makes exactly what our customers need for specification, flavour & taste.
There are many breeds of pigs in the world, each with different characteristics, some large fatty ones, to small very lean types. Our choice of pig is the Pietrain Pig because it is a low cholesterol breed that has a fantastic meat to fat ratio that has excellent flavour with guaranteed results in the kitchen.
Having access to a large volume of good grade, perfect sized pork sides to choose from on a daily basis enables us to create the consistent “Restaurant Quality” pork cuts that people have come to expect from the Sherwood brand. We have daily delivery of pigs to the production facilities from long standing local countryside farms in Belgium & Northern France.
Our select breed of pigs gets the name Pietrain from the small village of “Pietrain” in the Wallonia region of Belgium where they mainly originated from.
