Who We Are
We are a local family owned business that specializes in supplying high quality authentic European meats, cheeses and breads. Good food is a tradition that we pride ourselves in maintaining by sharing a unique glimpse into old country methods handed down for generations.

Where It all Started
Originally established in …the tradition of preparing cured meats was passed down to Luc by his grandfather, Cosmo. Native to the region of Calabria, Cosmo DeMaria grew up in a large Italian household where food and family always came together. “I came to Canada, and I thought about doing something from home” recalls Cosmo. Together, with his wife Lisa and son Jim, Cosmo began selling his products at various farmers markets throughout Ontario. Over the past 27 years, Cosmo has devoted his time ensuring high quality products for his costumers. Today, Cosmo’s understanding and appreciation of flavour, texture and variety makes his business a destination, not only for those of European extraction, but for all who wish to bring authenticity into their home.
The love for authentic, premium food, family and entertaining continues on today. In order to support and preserve Cosmo’s legacy, Luc, alongside his Father, Bruce, and Mother, Sonia carried on the family tradition and brought the business to the west. Luc’s European Meats was founded in Calgary in 2015 and now shares this tradition with several markets in and around the Calgary area.
