Felix Gamze migrated to Australia at an early age from his birth place in Slovenia, coming from very traditional roots with a strong importance placed on good and wholesome food. It ran in the family, with his uncle was also a butcher in their home town of Spicnik in Slovenia.
The family settled in Wangaratta, where Felix went to school before starting his butchering apprenticeship in 1971. During his time learning the trade, he became very passionate about smallgoods making – how could he not, with his Eastern European heritage and being surrounded by the magnificent food bowl that is North East Victoria?
Going into business for himself in 1986, Felix was able to further develop and refine his unique recipes of quality smallgoods. Graduating from a retail butcher shop to a state of the art smallgoods facility at the end of 2014.
