Virginia’s Finest Meat Distributors
Victor Constantine is owner of one of the few remaining privately owned meat distributors in the Washington DC Metropolitan region. Independent butcher shops have decreased in number over the last decade, since meat sales have fallen overall and restaurants have increasingly moved to large wholesale distributors. However, this has created an opportunity for specialty butcher shops in markets that provide only basic options through these larger retailers. Victor’s market niche is providing customized meat cuts for each client – clients are individual restaurants, chains, caterers and specialty places such as country clubs.
