Welcome to Cannings! This business was built from the ground up, fueled by my love of good food and my compassion for animal welfare. Since 2010, my philosophy has been embraced and supported by the local communities, for which I am ever grateful. Years on, the business has grown, and I’m incredibly grateful to have such an amazing network of free range producers and a team of staff who represent my core values. My name is Sam Canning, and I look forward to providing you the finest free range produce Australia has to offer, for years to come.
As butchers with a conscience, we take pride in delivering Australia's most high welfare produce. Guided by our code of ethics and informed sourcing process, we strive to create positive change in our field.

That's right. Our mantra is CARE. We figure that if we handle every process, every customer, every staff member, every aspect of the business with care, then everything will fall into place. Did you know that as well as being certified carbon neutral, we also give back to the animal kingdom in the form of regular and ongoing donations to amazing charities such as Animals Australia, Humane Society, RSPCA Victoria, Sea Shepherd, Guide Dogs Victoria and the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
In a world of confusing labels, misleading claims and general uncertainly around product provenance and welfare standards, it's nice to know that when you shop at Cannings, things are simple. Thanks to our considered selection process, our animals are true free range, cage free and happy animals from the south west regions of Australia. Our animals have never been administered growth hormones or routine antibiotics. We believe that high welfare, free range produce is the only honest and fair option.
Our Selection Process
It's been a passionate journey of education and adventure as we've researched and met some of Australia's best producers, on the hunt for high welfare, high quality produce at a price point that is accessible to everybody. We make the effort to meet our producers on their farms for an insight into their operation. The farm philosophy, how they raise and care for the animals, their logistics, supply chain and the abattoirs at which the animals are processed, are are all critical factors that form the basis of the Cannings Selection Process.
