Tulip acquires Bristol charcuterie firm

Tulip has acquired Castellano's Charcuterie, the award-winning, Bristol-based processed meat supplier.

Founded by Vincent Castellano, who trained as a butcher, charcutier and traiteur in the French Alps, the Castellano's business provides 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.

Tulip's CEO, Chris Thomas, commented, '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.'
