SUNSHINE MEATS DOUBLE SMOKED HAM

HOW IT ALL BEGAN
From humble beginnings in 1988, and with a mere $500 in his pocket, founder and owner of Sunshine Meats, Jose Pereira, was given the opportunity of a lifetime: to purchase a small butcher shop in Redfern from his employer.
To differentiate their products from supermarket giants, Jose's wife Maria drew on her experience working in delis to introduce the likes of pasta, fresh bread, and cheeses to complement their fresh meat. Jose started to create smoked and oven roasted products, experimenting with flavours inspired by his home Madeira, Portugal.
Rising rental prices squeezed Sunshine Meats out of Redfern and over to Dulwich Hill. As popularity and demand for their smoked smallgoods increased, he moved to a factory in Marrickville and after a decade, Sunshine Meats outgrew its Marrickville factory, resulting in the construction of a purpose built factory in Milperra in 2011.
