Meatways Kambah was originally opened in 1973 by Cameron’s dad Peter Fenson. Peter’s business goals were simple, just supply the best cuts of meat at affordable prices.
Before the days of the supermarket, everyone would visit the local butcher to get their meat. So if you weren’t supplying the freshest, quality cuts, you didn’t last long.
At a time when sausages were either just plain beef, pork or lamb, Peter started creating new and interesting varieties by adding fresh herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables. Peter was well known around Canberra for his creative sausages; a passion inherited by Cameron.
With a friendly smile and a sincere “How are you?”, Peter became good friends with many of his customers over the years. While retired, Peter can still be found at the shop mentoring the staff and helping out during the Christmas rush.
