Manager Finance & Control


Since its establishment in 1997, Group of Butchers has grown into the undisputed category captain of the deli fresh meat segment for various occasions (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacking). Through its focus on an attractive premium assortment, various packaging types and enacting a successful buy-and-build strategy, Group of Butchers has expanded geographically and broadened its unique assortment of artisanal meat products and non-meat (salads, tapas, hummus, soups), powered by innovation and responsiveness to market trends. Group of Butchers is headquartered in Tilburg, The Netherlands, and has an own distribution center in Boxtel. More than 1700 colleagues are involved in the activities of Group of Butchers. In December 2020 Dutch investment firm Parcom finalised the acquisition of Group of Butchers from Equistone Partners Europe, a UK investment firm. Going forward, Parcom will give a boost to this strategic route by acting as sparring partner for management and by actively supporting the integration of recently acquired companies. With Parcom’s proven experience and widespread network, Group of Butchers will exploit the further sustainable upside potential and continue its strong performance.
