Company Profile

Mr. Vasiliou set up his meat retail shop in 1990 at Pelendri, a village of Pitsilia, the region best known for its traditional meat products.  His family, as many in the region, had the knowledge of processing and preserving meat using Cyprus traditional methods inherited from their forefathers.  Their commitment to the conservation of this gastronomic heritage led to the first steps of their commercial involvement in the processing and selling of traditionally preserved meat products in the mid 90s.  Initially they produced Cyprus sausages, "Posirti" (smoked bacon cured in wine), Lounza and Chiromeri.  The products received an excellent welcome from Mr. Vasiliou's retail shop customers and in 2002 the family finally decided to concentrate exclusively on this class of products (and discontinue the sale of fresh meat).  A modern processing plant was constructed at Pelendri, and a limited liability company was set up.  Strict hygiene procedures were put in place with the plant operating under the HACCP certification and gradually, the product range expanded to include also Pastourma (beef product), Koumniasta, Apochti (goat) and Tsamarella (goat).  Some of their products are cured in wine and are smoked, while others are salted and dried in the sun.  As the traditional methods demand, no preservatives are used in any of their products and a careful procurement of fresh pork meat is undertaken, usually from a handful of selected suppliers. Dedication to quality products has also meant that the Vasiliou family produces its own red wine, a basic ingredient in traditional processes, using the mavro grape variety found locally in the area.

 

Despite its short life, Vasiliou Deli Ltd is a highly successful regional traditional meat processor. Its products are made available in the majority of supermarkets in Limassol and to many retail points in Nicosia.  The company's workforce has grown from just two people in 2002 (Mr. Vasiliou and Mrs. Vasiliou) to six and a new generation active management has joint in, helping the marketing and distribution tasks.  In the context of business development, Vasiliou Deli is now in position to manage growth and is keen to expand sales to foreign markets.

 

 

Good - Clean and Fair

The company is dedicated to providing quality traditional products and maintains an ambition to conserve and promote the gastronomic heritage of their Pitsilia region, in Cyprus and beyond. Using the motto Good-Clean and Fair, Vasiliou Deli took part in the 6th Salone Del Gusto (www.salonedelgusto.com) organized by Slow Food International. In this event, Vasiliou Tsamarella was one of 300 products selected out of 65.000 to receive the PRESIDIUM award, an honour reflecting the perceived value of the product and its unique traditional character.
