Cornish butcher launches wholesale business

A new wholesale business has been launched in the South West by the man behind Kernow Sausages.

Two Brothers Foods, previously known as Vealls, is a new project from Cornish butcher Gavin Roberts. He acquired wholesaler Vealls last year in order to grow his business in a new direction.

The company aims to set a new industry standard in terms of quality and consistency, with an in-house team of butchers processing every cut of meat freshly to order with full details of provenance.

Roberts said: “We understand how important it is for chefs and their customers to know where their meat comes from, and how it was reared.

“Our aim at Two Brothers Foods is to deliver the finest, freshest seasonal foods and niche products - picked, prepped, packed and delivered with great service standards to the kitchen doors of chefs across the West Country.”

The company will sell a range of key kitchen staples including fresh meats, poultry, deli, dairy and frozen produce.

Neil Haydock, executive chef at Watergate Bay Hotel in North Cornwall, said: “Gavin’s approach and ethos has ensured that Kernow Sausages has been extremely successful and is a respected brand in Cornwall. I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Two Brothers Foods - taking over Vealls and now relaunching it means that Gavin can take his approach to a wider audience with a larger product range.”

The Two Brothers re-brand is a nod to Ron and John Veall, who founded the company in 1964 and saw it grow to supply over 200 businesses in the South West.
