Founders Dhruv and Tom met through Masterchef; Dhruv was champion in 2010, Tom runner-up in 2011. Having both been in the culinary world since that time, they share a love food, culminating in a love of charcuterie
“We have both always loved the alchemy that is charcuterie, taking something in its raw form and transforming it into something so incredible; it requires patience but when you see the fruits of your labour, it’s truly special”
From this shared passion, Tempus was born and led to the setup of a purpose-built and designed facility in Weybridge, Surrey. Dhruv and Tom are supported by a small but dedicated team, who work tirelessly to produce these special products.
Since its founding in 2017, Tempus has won a host of industry awards, received SALSA accreditation in it's first 6 months and has gone on to become a name synonymous with excellence in British Charcuterie
Tempus was a range that we had to have on our shelves at Fortnum's. I cannot recommend them enough
