The NFMFT Team

James (Jim) Sperring - National President
Jim Sperring joined the family firm of JWC Sperring and Sons, established in 1928 in Southborough Lane, Bromley, Kent in time honoured fashion prior to leaving school working part time as an errand and Saturday boy.

On leaving school age sixteen, Jim had to quickly learn his trade under the tuition and watchful eye of his Father who’s untimely and sudden death in 1966 caused twenty year old Jim, with a prematurely widowed Mother and two younger brothers, to take over the reins of the business and responsibilities for the family.

JWC Sperring and Sons had two other branches in the Bromley area in which Jim worked, run by uncles and have since closed due to retirement and downsizing during the seventies and mid-eighties.

Similar to his Father and Grandfather before him Jim is a long standing member of the Federation, and London Retail Meat Traders Association (LRMTA) serving several years on the Association’s Central Council and as President since 2012.

Jim is the South East Region representative on the Federation’s National Executive and since last year, prior to becoming President Elect, has responsibilities as NFMFT representative with the Butchers and Drovers Charitable Institution.

Jim says “The trade and reputation of JWC Sperring and Sons as the ‘oldest family butchers’ in Bromley, Kent is based on knowing your customers, traditional craft butchery and top quality meat sourced from both reputable and bespoke suppliers”!
