The 30 year-old family run company, Tipesca, is distinguished by a wide range of fresh, smoked and prepared fish products. Tipesca offers monkfish, scallops, swordfish, crabs, sea urchins, tuna and much more – always market-fresh and in small quantities. The products are sourced from European fish markets and are rigorously inspected when being unloaded in Ticino. Essential during the inspection is the freshness of the product and maintenance of the cooling chain during transport. Origin, appropriate storage and transport as well as professional processing guarantee excellent fish and seafood products. In addition to the comprehensive fish and seafood assortment, this traditional gastronomy company also sells regional meat and charcuterie products. This tradition-rich company has belonged to Mérat AG since 2017 and is thus part of the Micarna Group. In addition to a wide ranging product assortment, Tipesca is especially distinguished by its detailed logistics. Numerous gastro companies in southern Switzerland are directly supplied with seafood specialties daily.

It once began as a small family butcher's shop, it became one of the most important Swiss catering suppliers when it comes to meat, poultry and seafood specialties. What has remained the same over the decades is the love of the product, the craft craftsmanship and, above all, regionality. Because Switzerland offers a great variety of culinary delights: from the west to the east of Switzerland, from Ticino to Schaffhausen. We believe in the importance of this regional diversity and therefore supply our customers daily from our nine regional gastro-butcheries. Fresh and uncomplicated.
