1991 – CMT initiated a collaboration with Gewuerzmueller Germany and the late and great international Master Butcher – Gottfried Schuberth. This was incredibly successful and a pivotal moment in the history of the company.
1993 – CMT was granted the right to distribute natural sausage casings from DAT-Schaub of Denmark, the largest producer of selected and calibrated natural casings in Europe. This was a game-changing stage because at the time, uncalibrated natural casings were commonplace in the UK.
1996 – A partnership was struck with Perfecta Ltd and then Jardox Ltd. This was another vital step as we were able to incorporate the blending of all kinds of “British” seasonings and mixes”, as well as bespoke seasoning and spice blends.
The Noughties and Beyond
2000s – The millennium saw even more advancement across CMT, with the introduction of new technology for raw fermented meat products such as Salami, Chorizo, and dry cured products.
It also saw the development of nitrate-free salt blends alongside new agencies and technologies like Beck-Gewuerze and HUKKI Salami casings.
Between 2000 and today, a dedication to expansion and innovation has also helped us broaden our product ranges to include oil based marinades.
2021 – And the innovations don’t stop. 2021 saw the successful integration of CMT into Smithfield Casings and Sundries Ltd, to drive growth and help advance our offerings across the spectrum of UK butchery and meat processors.
