Tony Yerolemou was born in Cyprus. He moved to the UK in 1960, when he joined the family business, which supplied Cypriot food to shopkeepers all around the country. He established the ‘Cypressa’ brand and started supplying products to the UK supermarkets. In addition to this, Tony Yerolemou opened restaurants and food manufacturing businesses which supplied ready meals to the UK supermarkets, becoming the biggest private company in its field.
The manufacturing business was sold in 2000 to an Icelandic group for £110 million.
