After residing in Perth for a few months, Riki and Daniel discovered they shared a common goal: to source quality cuts of meat and authentic Brazilian products for their Sunday barbecues, or “Churrasco.” Their shared passion led to the formation of a successful business partnership and the establishment of Churras in 2013. Initially, the company only offered delivery services for Picanha (Rump Cap) and Linguiças (sausages).

Barbecue is a passion for us, and we have been delighted to share our South American heritage with the Australian community. In addition to delivering meats, we also offer catering services for corporate barbecues and private events, with the aim of popularising Brazilian barbecue in Perth.


2014 was a significant milestone for our small business as we formed a partnership with IGAs Supermarkets, which allowed us to offer our handcrafted sausages to a wider audience. This partnership has enabled us to continually enhance our services and products over the years, providing the best experience to our customers in Australia.


After a few years of operating as a delivery-only service and participating in events, we realised that we could do even more for our customers. In 2017, we opened our first butcher store on Walcot Street in Perth, fulfilling our dream of establishing ourselves as a local butcher providing the community with everything they need for a perfect barbecue and daily cuts.


In 2018, we continued our journey of innovation and growth by launching the Churras Food Truck. This strategic move was aimed at promoting our business and showcasing our South American roots to a broader audience. The food truck was carefully designed and equipped with a charcoal barbecue to provide a traditional barbecue experience


In March 2020, we relocated to 149 Brisbane Street in Perth to provide better customer service and expand our range of South American groceries. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we are grateful for the unwavering support from the community, which has allowed us to grow and flourish.


We are much more than just meat. We are dedicated to bringing you a great selection of imported products and fresh meats, all in one convenient location. This allows the South American community to feel a little closer to home, and for Australians to discover the delicious flavors of Latin cuisine.



We look forward to what 2023 has in store for us and are ready to serve you at Churras Meat and Grocer.


Churras or Churrasco?

“Churrasco” is a Portuguese term for a type of cooking popular in South America, particularly Brazil, where meat is grilled directly over fire or charcoal. This method is deeply rooted in South American cuisine and translates as Barbecue.


For Brazilians, the word “Churrasco” or “Churras” is associated with joyful gatherings, high-quality food, lively music, and unbridled fun. This spirit of celebration has been contagious and has won the hearts of many Australians, who have come to appreciate Latin cuisine more and more. #LetsChurras
