Image of the sector

Meat is a sensitive product. The image of meat is not always positive, which is a pity because we have a lot to be proud of!

Our products are of a high quality, controls are severe in Europe, and a high importance is given to food security and care for ingredients during production. We produce meat with real expertise.

Our products have a high nutritional value, contain little/no sugars or carbohydrates, are rich in proteins and minerals including iron, magnesium as well as vitamin B12, …

Our production has an impact on the environment, that’s true! But … our companies are making a lot of efforts to reduce their environmental impact. Waste water purification, water recuperation, alternative energy initiatives are but a few examples.

There is nothing such nutritious as a meat sandwich for our children!

We also pay a lot of attention to animal welfare. During recent years, good animal husbandry has become the norm in our sector and a lot of efforts were undertaken.

We employ 6000 people. We contribute to our society as employers and entrepreneurs.

Meat products have different calories: we offer a wide choice of healthy meat to the market

Eating meat products is an essential element of a balanced healthy lifestyle
