Capreolus Joins Hunt's Food Group

Hunt's Food Group is excited to announce that it has acquired Capreolus, a well-known English charcuterie brand. Capreolus has been making delicious charcuterie meats since 2009, earning awards like the Great Taste Awards Golden Forks and the Taste of the West Champion Charcuterie on several occasions.

At the start of 2024, faced with challenges stemming from the 2020 Covid pandemic, Capreolus found solidarity in joining forces with Hunt's Food Group in early 2024. This isn't just a business deal; it's a partnership between two family-owned companies dedicated to making great products and giving excellent service. Together, they're committed to providing their customers with top-quality meats and culinary experiences.

"We are pleased to have Capreolus as part of the group's own brand offering and are happy to retain the knowledge and passion that David (founder of Capreolus) will bring to the wider business." - Thomas Hunt, Managing Director of Hunt's Food Group.

Since joining Hunt's Food Group, Capreolus has significantly improved its production site in Rampisham. It has also recently renewed its SALSA accreditation, showing its dedication to creating safe, high-quality food.

"Since joining Hunt's Food Group at the start of the year, we have been overwhelmed by the team's support and expertise. We are confident that this partnership will enable us to continue to deliver fantastic products with the highest levels of consistency across the Hunt's Distribution network"—David Richards, Capreolus Manager.

Now that Capreolus is part of Hunt's Food Group, it is working on some changes to strengthen the brand even more. It is improving its processes, upgrading its facilities, and giving the brand a fresh look. These changes will help Capreolus stay true to its values and continue to grow.

"We are incredibly excited about Capreolus's future and look forward to sharing this fantastic range with our customers," said Thomas Hunt.

Capreolus's range of products is now available to all of Hunt's Food Group customers in both retail and catering packs; you can find out more about Capreolus by visiting
