We are a Bermondsey-based team sourcing salumi and cheese from a network of small producers across Italy. Since we started in 2005 we have grown from a stall at Borough Market to supplying some of the best restaurants and food shops both in and outside of London
The idea is simple - to find the very best producers in Italy. We source meticulously, finding people who not only make the best tasting ham and cheese but who also work in an ethical and sustainable way. Take our Taleggio; from the last dairy in the alpine Val Taleggio, it is one of only 2 still using unpasteurised milk from the heritage Brun'Alpina cow. Or our Calabrian Nduja; made by Tonino Sansone who is the deputy mayor of his village as well as the school bus driver. He spends his spare time working with his rare breed Nero Calabrese pigs and making the most delicious, spicy Nduja that we have ever tasted. The people we work with are amazing and we visit them regularly to talk and eat, lucky enough to be welcomed into their kitchens and communities and to learn some of the magic behind their art. Read about them all in our supplier section
Back in London there are 7 of us working at our wholesale maturing rooms in a Victorian railway arch in Bermondsey. The cool, damp brickwork provides the perfect conditions for all our products and an ideal space for the retail and tasting events that we run during the year.
