Toronto Arrows Announce Partnership with Olliffe Butcher Shop

TORONTO, ON – The Toronto Arrows Rugby Football Club is pleased to announce Olliffe Butcher Shop as the team’s official butcher shop for the 2021 Major League Rugby season. The partnership will see Olliffe supply high-quality protein to the club’s senior and academy teams, helping Canada’s lone professional rugby team reach its peak performance.

“The Arrows are very excited to partner with Olliffe for the 2021 season,” said Rahul Srinivasan, Toronto Arrows Director of Partnerships. “It is critical that we build relationships with local Toronto businesses, especially those with a keen focus on quality, a value that both the Arrows and Olliffe place a high emphasis on.”

Olliffe has been Toronto’s most respected butcher shop for more than four decades. The company prioritizes making connections at the grassroots level, enabling them to monitor the growing cycle of the animals to give their in-store butchers confidence when selling cuts from nose to tail.

Olliffe is committed to working directly with farmers and producers, and shops locally with their partners for the best-quality product that is found regionally.

“This partnership with the Toronto Arrows makes great sense for Olliffe,” said Sam Gundy, Owner, Olliffe Butcher. “We’re proud to be part of the team as this year’s official butcher. At Olliffe we know how important high-quality proteins and proper nutrition are for a competing athlete to achieve optimal performance. We’re excited to support the Toronto Arrows in what we know will be a promising year for the team.”

The Arrows will begin their third campaign in North America’s top-flight professional rugby league with a road match against Rugby ATL on Saturday, Mar. 20, 2021.
