Bear’s Story

The Bear’s brand was the dream of Paul “Bear” Apperley.

Bear was a butcher by trade and worked at McAtamney’s for many years alongside his two brothers John, Colin and sister Anne.

In December 2012 Bear helped with the establishment of McAtamney’s Gourmet Kitchen. Since establishment the Gourmet Kitchen has grown from strength to strength. The kitchen originated with two staff and is now operating with over twenty staff, supplying natural homemade ready meals and added value products to McAtamney’s retail outlets and beyond.

Bear’s dream was to develop his own brand (Bear’s Brand) of high quality unique products that are wholesome and full of flavour “something that little bit different”. Bear had a lot of love and passion for food, he had a creative mind and was a genius when inventing new recipes.

Unfortunately in 2013 Bear developed at heart condition and sadly passed awayin 2016, aged 36.

We aim to carry on his legacy and deliver a quality product to the market.

We hope you enjoy the Bear experience.

Bear Rules!

Paul “Bear” Apperley (1979-2016)
