CA Traiteur & Salaisons

Taste is above all a matter of sensation, flavour, aroma and texture. A gustatory balance that only true expertise can achieve, and no enhancer or additive can ever equal. Chefs, charcutiers and pastry chefs have unique artisanal skills we are committed to protecting. This culinary heritage would certainly not survive without the incredible diversity of our regional products. It's a winning combination for those who seek uncompromising quality.

Antoine d’Espous, CEO - Thierry Delaval, Managing Director

Our history

The CA Traiteur & Salaisons group was formed through the alliance of three major companies rooted in the tradition of French charcuterie tradition : Loste, Grand Saloir Saint Nicolas and Tradi-France. Now a producer and distributor of charcuterie and deli products for catering professionals and independent distributors, CA Traiteur & Salaisons aspires to defend the skills and specialities of our regions each and every day.

Boasting a rich and varied range of dried charcuterie, deli products, fine foods, and more, CA Traiteur & Salaisons has steadily secured its role as a key player for catering professionals and retailers. Its subsidiaries strive each day to showcase our region’s specialities building on the legacy of skills and techniques inherited from French culinary artisans.
