Di Censo's butchery

Confronted with the realisation that an increasing sector of the population are gluten intolerant, Alf and Rose Di Censo offer gluten-free sausages in their family owned and operated award winning butchery in Melbourne. Located in the charming shopping precinct of Tunstall Square for twenty-seven years running, Di Censo has consistently offered the highest standard in meat products to satisfy the demands of delicate palates. First and foremost is their emphasis on customer care and service. Their motto; 'you are not an interruption to our work, you are the purpose of it,' speaks volumes about the value that is placed on all who walk into the store. For those interested in sampling their gourmet sausages, Saturday mornings will be the best time to come.

Alf and Rose have continued a long tradition of manufacturing and retailing gourmet sausages, fresh and cold meats, dry goods and breads. They can be proud of their Italian heritage and use traditional methods in manufacturing that has been handed down to them over eight generations. Now that's expertise.

Their list of awards are too numerous to mention. Here are a few: National sausage king winner, small goods awards for pastrami, ham and Strasburg. You can find out more about their awards through the Australian Meat Industry Council by clicking here.
