A Small Family Business that Grew Into a Large Family Business

For more than 75 years, one name has been synonymous with the finest quality veal and lamb products in the U.S.: Catelli. It was in 1946 that Anthony P. Catelli, Sr. started his veal and lamb wholesale business in Philadelphia, PA, enjoying considerable success as he built a loyal customer base. Sons Tony and Jim, carrying on their Dad’s tradition of family-oriented service and superior product quality, launched Catelli Brothers in 1981. Now called Catelli Brothers Family of Foods, Tony Catelli is the President and CEO of the firm, which is part of Préval AG, the largest vertically integrated veal and lamb company in North America.

Now Part of an Even Larger Family

Catelli Brothers Family of Foods is the U.S. Meat Division of Préval AG, an international agri-food company with more than 45 subsidiaries whose activities include animal husbandry and abattoir operations for veal, beef and lamb, transportation and meat processing, as well as large scale crop and horticulture production and grain processing. Headquartered in Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec, Préval AG currently has more than 1,800 employees in Canada, the United States and South America. The company is owned by the Fontaine family that has been farming and producing the finest quality veal and lamb for more than 30 years.

Préval AG oversees every phase of production from farm to table. The operating philosophy is simple: by carefully controlling and integrating each stage in the production process, the company is able to continually offer consumers safe, nutritious and tasty quality products.

The Catelli Brothers state-of-the-art processing facilities in New Jersey and Masachusetts—along with its sister processor in Canada, Montpak International—distributes veal and lamb and other specialty meat products to retailers and food service providers throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and beyond.

Préval AG has expanded significantly in recent years and will continue to do so by acquiring other food and agricultural organizations such as field companies, market gardening, grain and meat processing. The goal is to continue to be a leader in the international agri-food industry.
