2021 February

On the 18th of February 2021, after months of bouncing around with ideas, soft testing products on Amazon, and taking a full crash course on ‘Brexit’, Victus Emporium was up and running.


2021 July

Victus Emporium was open for trade.

The website had been launched and George was on the road, looking for his first sales. Shout out goes to Im at Fresh and Save in Didsbury, south Manchester, who loved George’s enthusiasm for his products so much he took one case of each SKU and remains a loyal customer to this day!


2021 August

The first ( of many ) tasting sessions. Victus Emporium’s first tasting session took place at Cheshire Smokehouse, a fantastic farm shop, situated just outside the glorious Cheshire town of Wilmslow. On the menu was Tumaca, a tomato spread from Spain, typically eaten at breakfast time, which was the product that ignited the entire business and is still going strong to this day.


2021 October

With George having started to expand the business, it was time to upgrade the polo to a van. With the customer base now stretching from Manchester, and the surrounding counties, down to Kent, the need to be able to transport a larger quantity of goods became a necessity,


2022 April

First trade show.

In the Spring of 2022, George ventured to the NEC to take on his first trade. What an experience it was, not only to meet so many great customers,  but to listen to the expert talks and speak with other likeminded businesses on how they have navigated the tricky waters of Brexit and the pandemic.


2022 May

Victus Emporium’s first department store!

In the May of 2022, George made his way to Norwich to make his first delivery, to the historic department store, Jarrold & Sons. This relationship has continued to blossom over the intervening years, with the Bret’s crisps becoming an growing favourite for this city in the East of England. Since then, Victus Emporium has continued to expand in this sector supplying other well known department stores such as Fortnum and Masons and Selfridges.


2022 July

Father and Son combine.

A year after trade commenced, Nick came on board to help with running of the business. A company director already, Nick has spent over 30 years working in food retail having supplied the like of Tesco’s, Aldi, Lidl, Sainsburys and many more. His journey into the industry came from his passion for food, having been taking on as a trainee chef at the Gatwick Hilton in the 1980’s before running a café in Chester and developing his own range of salad dressings. It’s obvious to say, his love and knowledge of food has been etched on the entire foundations of Victus Emporium and has clearly rubbed off on George.


2022 December

The first Christmas with a dedicated range.

This was an experience to say the least; record sales; van breaking down; lorry load of goods from Europe getting a punctured tire; Christmas markets; Christmas tastings; and much more. Christmas is such a pivotal time within the independent food sector and the importance of getting it right is key to any business working within it.


2023 March

The First Awards.

In the Spring of 2023 VE were back at the Farmshop and Deli show, showcasing another year’s worth of products. Heading into the show they had put forward two of their products for awards: alioli and aioli crisps. Both of which received a category Bronze award.

    We were originally sceptical having had no real success with foods over the last 20 years but we were absolutely blown away with the quality and taste of the brets crisps and started stocking them immediately in autumn 2022 and they have been such a success to the point that some customers are having to ‘dry-out’ in january!

  • Darren, The Cheshire Smokehouse

    Victus emporium first approached us in july of ‘21 and although their range at that time was limited, we now stock over 15 of their lines and the volumes are growing month on month. the quality of the products they sell is amazing and the customer service they offer is outstanding. we would highly recommend victus emporium to anyone looking to expand and add to their range.

  • Hannah Hess

    Amazing company ! Speedy delivery, most amazing service… the products are all so moorish ! Tastes always as though you are on holiday with every mouthful of each one!

  • Ivan West

    Purchased the Allioli for the Christmas period. It went down very well as a dip and as a light spread for all them left over turkey sandwiches. Highly recommend

  • Rory Mathers

    Great products, great service!!

  • Charlie Clewlow

    Nothing better than tumaca on some fresh sourdough bread rubbed with garlic on a Saturday morning in the garden. Great product at a really great price. Would recommend to anyone!

  • Armandos Deli

    Great products on offer as a wholesaler. Cantabrian Anchovies and Pasta di Acciughe were easy to order and delivered quickly. Looking forward to processing my next order with you. Grazie

  • Maisy Hyder

    Firstly the customer service I received was outstanding. George was kind, patient and more than happy to go into detail about the tumaca. Such a kind company that I would buy from time & time again. The most important part - the food😍 So tasty! I used to have avocado on toast a lot but it’s high in calories and doesn’t always look very appealing. Replaced it with the tumaca and it was so yummy. Perfectly blended and just the right amount of flavours. Also had it in a crusty roll with sausages and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I can’t wait to explore more with it. We are going to make a pizza using this as our sauce instead of tomato purée because it’s that tasty! Would definitely recommend and will 100% be buying more once I’ve used mine up.

  • Harry Carling

    Incredible product, would 100% buy again!

  • Adam Nunes

    Glad to finally get my hands on some great tasting Tumaca in the UK, been searching ever since a trip to Spain a few years back. Customer service is great too, really friendly and easy to deal with, thank you!

  • Chester Duff

    Victus Emporium provides exactly what I’ve been looking for. The Tumaca tastes even better than it does in Spain at a great price! I will certainly be back for more

  • Mike Ginno

    Unbelievable product!! This tastes just like it does in Spain and at such a great price! The only other place I can purchase it from is Amazon and for the same product it’s almost double the price. They also have a great website which is easy to navigate and has everything on there - I will definitely be back for some of their other bits!

  • J Parks

    Amazing! Since visiting Spain two years ago I have been looking everywhere for tumaca! Takes me back to breakfast at our favourite café overlooking the sea. Victous have somehow managed to bring the Spanish coast to my kitchen! 🏖️

  • Nick Hess

    Excellent products, price and service. Will recommend and use regularly.

  • Christine Roche

    I’ve orders on several occasions from this company, and without compromise the products are not only very unique, they are absolutely delicious I can highly recommend the Tumaca but also try the Tortas and Saffron they are of the highest quality too. Not forgetting the best salt I’ve ever tasted, and yes a good quality salt is very different. In addition to this the customer service is first class, fast delivery always and personal updates on orders. Highly recommend!
