The Very Good Butchers are a Canadian plant-based meat company, vegan butcher shop, and restaurant operating out of Victoria, British Columbia. The company was founded in 2016 by James Davidson and Tania Friesen. The Very Good Butchers officially opened up their restaurant, vegan butcher shop, and production facility on February 25, 2017, at the Victoria Public Market in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada — becoming the first vegan butcher shop to open up in western Canada.

The Very Good Butchers began selling their vegan and vegetarian products at a local farmers market on Denman Island in British Columbia in early 2016. With each visit to Deman Island farmers market, The very Good Butcher was selling out within a few hours. Founders James Davidson and Tania Friesen met Mitchell Scott in the fall of 2016 and hired him for a business operations and marketing position in hopes of growing the company.
