We are delighted to announce that we are opening a new delicatessen, Deli Cymreig, in the market on Friday, 11 May 2018.
The new deli will be selling a range of cured meats all prepared in our premisis in Llanmorlais sourced from the same animals as for the butchers’ shop. These will be complemented with continental charcuterie, Welsh cheeses, locally produced honey, Gower jams and chutneys and many other delicious deli treats all sourced from Welsh suppliers.
Importantly, we have eliminated as much plastic as possible at the new Deli Cymreig; and the packaging is made from sugar cane and so is fully compostable. The deli will also be offering refillable bottles and jars for key products such as olives and olive oil.
Says Catherine Butler, MD of Hugh Phillips Gower Butchers, “Over the past 10 years, we have developed our business to expand the services offered by our abattoir to local farmers as well as supplying our own butchers shop. When the deli stall closed down in Swansea market last year, we seized the opportunity to take over this unit, enabling us to process and cure our own meats on our own premises.
“We have always been a great supporter of everything Welsh and so have taken our time to source the very best produced from across Wales including traditional Welsh butter which is made in the traditional way using paddles! It’s been a huge learning curve as curing meats is a very different skill from standard butchering and we are now very excited to be able supply delicious Welsh produce to Swansea market customers.”
Deli Cymreig is situated at Unit 57a in Swansea Market and will be celebrating the launch by offering customers the opportunity to sample some of the produce on opening day, Friday 11 May 2018.
