Retail Meat Store

The store is operated by TRU for the purpose of training students in the Retail Meat Processing certificate program.

We have determined it is best for our students to focus on skill development and curriculum in their first semester of the program. We will be adding the retail portion of the curriculum starting in the winter semester (January). This will include opening of the retail meat store on selected Thursday’s. We will continue to send out email notifications in advance of store days.
