Job Description for Butcher / Meat Cutter

A butcher/meat cutter is a person who prepares meat for consumption in retail businesses or shops. These workers must cut and trim large portions of meat from carcasses into portions that shoppers will want to buy. Butchers/meat cutters must be aware of safety and sanitary conditions, as requirements are typically set by government agencies. They should be able to prepare an attractive showcase of available cuts of meats, and they will be called on to provide customer service functions. Oftentimes, a consumer will ask a butcher how to prepare a certain cut of meat, so a knowledge of cooking meat is also helpful.
