Tulip snaps up charcuterie firm

Tulip has purchased a Bristol-based charcuterie business, Castellano’s Charcuterie.

The multi-award-winning charcuterie business was owned by Vincent Castellano, who trained as a butcher, charcutier and traiteur in the French Alps.

The acquisition sees Tulip expand its portfolio of pork products with Castellano’s charcuterie range, which has a reputation for being the very finest charcuterie products throughout the south-west of England and beyond, Tulip reported.

Tulip’s chief executive officer Chris Thomas commented on the acquisition: “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.”
