Our CEO and Founder
Our Founder Totuccio Castiglione is a hands-on CEO with expertise in business development, sales of charcuterie products, cheeses and other Italian specialities.
Totuccio was born in Sicily, Italy – where he enjoyed a traditional rural upbringing. He developed his commercial skills at a very young age helping in the family wood-fired bakery and continued to progress after moving to the UK, where the family opened an Italian restaurant.
With over 35 years’ experience in the F&B industry, he started working as a sales executive for a subsidiary of a renowned Italian food producer. Within his first decade in the business, he successfully developed a portfolio of retail and wholesale customers selling Italian products from some of the most prestigious brands in the sector. Having established a strong reputation in the market, he progressed his career becoming UK exclusive agent for Italian manufacturers supplying major traders in UK.
Through strategic foresight, drive and determination, he built a strong foundation for his own successful company. Cibosano Ltd was founded in 2003, importing high quality Italian Charcuterie and by expanding its range it began its journey in supplying wholesalers, specialist retailers and foodservice operators across the UK.
Today Cibosano stands out as one of the UK’s leading importers of authentic Italian food and beverages with a reputation synonymous with quality and service! Its expertise and superior standards make Cibosano the supplier of choice for the discerning customer.
Our Operations & Logistics Manager
Our Operations & Logistics Manager, Antonio (better known as Tony), plays a key role in our company and as a family member, he is very passionate in supervising the distribution processes and overseeing the supply chain management to ensure that deliveries are executed timely and accurately.
Antonio joined the family business at the young age of 23, receiving goods in and picking orders, while his father Totuccio was doing what he does best… selling Italian Charcuterie and Cheeses.
“I always remember as a child that my father’s dream was to start his own company, importing Italian food products to England, mainly cured meats and fresh cheeses. He said time after time – ‘when you grow up, you will have a company bringing Italian food products to the UK’. The dream came true and Cibosano Ltd was founded.”
The business grew rapidly through the years while Antonio gained experience across all the company departments; from going out for deliveries to picking and packing as well as office duties. For a few years he was also responsible for visiting clients and taking orders, a great opportunity for him to promote the wide range of products distributed by Cibosano. As workload increased in the office and logistically, Antonio moved back full time to the office to oversee order processing and telesales.
As the Operations and Logistics Manager, Antonio is responsible for all distribution, maintenance, safety and order management. With great dedication and responsibility, he carries out his role in the most efficient way and with staff and clients always in mind.
