Tulip Enters British Charcuterie

14 November 2014

UK – British pig meat processing company Tulip has completed the purchase of Castellano's Charcuterie, the multi award winning, Bristol based, charcuterie business from owner, Vincent Castellano.

Founded by Vincent Castellano, who trained as a butcher, charcutier and traiteur in the French Alps, the Castellano's business specialises in providing a range of premium quality air cured and semi cured meats, sausage and cooked deli products for wholesalers and distributors, as well as the retail and restaurant sectors.

Since commencing trading, in the early 1980s, Castellano's has gained a reputation for providing the very finest of products to businesses throughout the southwest of England and beyond and is recognised as a true pioneer of charcuterie.

Commenting on the acquisition Tulip's CEO, Chris Thomas said; "British charcuterie is in strong growth and I am delighted that we have been able to take this opportunity to acquire the Castellano's business.

"The integration of the business into the wider Tulip organisation should enable Castellano's to maintain its rightful position at the very fore of British charcuterie in terms of quality and innovation."
