WHILE the Singh's Mutton Market journey began a long while before, 20 years ago on this very day - 26 October 1996 - the impeccably well aged and grain fed duo of Dhiraj and Ashika Singh realised their dream of an authentic residential family butchery in Stanger Manor.

Their dream turned out to be no flash in the pan, as 20 years on the steadfast Singh's Mutton Market has become the butchery of choice among KwaDukuza's population.

Reputed for their great, friendly service and high quality meat and meat products, Singh's Mutton Market Stanger Manor aims to consistently produce happy customers by providing personal service excellence, extremely competitive prices and most importantly good and honest business ethics.

Singh’s Mutton Market attributes their growing success to a team of hardworking staff who never fail to deliver.

“We want to thank our managing staff, floor staff and especially our manufacturing staff for their effort and unwavering dedication,” said Dhiraj Singh.

The Stanger Manor branch is undoubtedly the most popular of Singh's Mutton Market’s string of butcheries, exclusively selling purely mutton products.

Singh's Mutton Market initially opened its doors in 1983 at Cato Street with the late Mr Madhan Singh at the helm. It very quickly became the 'meating' place for the local community. In 2001, the booming city of Richards Bay experienced the quality of Singh's Mutton Market products and in 2008 a Singh’s Mutton Market extension store was opened in King Shaka Street.

In 2010 Ashika Singh went on to open a branch in bustling Ballito to meet the needs of patrons from Ballito and surrounding areas. Singh's Mutton Market's accolades include being voted number one in the Best of the Best 2015 competition and taking second place in the Best of the Best 2016 competition.

Singh’s Mutton Market has also, over the past three years, consecutively won the Zululand Observer’s Best Butchery award since the competition’s inception.

Ashika Singh’s latest achievement is becoming a finalist in The Entrepreneur 2016 competition held by the iLembe Chamber of Commerce.

Speaking about the family business Ashika Singh said: "I am always so thrilled to see familiar faces when I am in Stanger Manor. You all have a special place in my heart. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your loyal support, kind gestures and respect during these past 20 years. I am sure that you also believe that even though you enter Singh's as a customer, you leave as family. We will continue to aspire to 'meat' your expectations and keep on the pulse of changing times without compromising on quality."
