Love Northern BC business: Lawrence Meat Packing Co. and The Butcher Block

March 24, 2020

In Dawson Creek, Dan and Tracy Strasky are the third-generation owners of Lawrence Meat Packing Co. and The Butcher Block. Tracy is the grand-daughter of Joe Lafond, who bought the company in 1944, six years after Glover Lawrence, the company’s namesake, established it. The family-owned-and-operated business takes pride in continuing the same tradition of top-notch customer service and quality meat which Joe and Irene Lafond were known for decades earlier.

“It’s been more than 75 years since my grandfather bought Lawrence Meat Packing and we’re proud to continue building upon his legacy of high quality meats and friendly service,” said Tracy Strasky, co-owner, Lawrence Meat Packing and The Butcher Block. “Our family appreciates the incredible opportunities that living in the Peace Region offers and we’re pleased to contribute to the community by supporting local producers and offering superior products to our customers.”

Lawrence Meat Packing and The Butcher Block prepare and sell a wide assortment of beef, pork, chicken and seafood products and also stocks a wide array of gourmet condiments, cheese, jellies and sauces. The Butcher Block has two retail locations, the original in Dawson Creek and a new location in Fort St. John.
