The Art of European Meat

Quality Meat from the heart of Europe − bringing together Craftsmanship, Food Safety and Tailor-Made Service. That is what the Belgian meat suppliers proudly present. As one of Europe’s leading meat producers and exporters, they have turned their expertise into… an art in itself.

    Belgium, pork specialist in Europe

    Belgium’s efficient and modern pork processing industry is particularly known for its flexibility. At the same time, your needs are unique. That’s why the Belgian meat suppliers want to cooperate closely with you to work out the tailor-made solution you need. Generations of perfectionists seek to bring safe, high quality pork to your markets.

    From the production of feed to veterinary services to the slaughterhouses and cutting plants—each next link in the chain is as important as the previous. That’s why in every part of the process, you’ll find professionals who are expert in their field, and who are passionate about their job.

    Tailor-made quality, thanks to professionalism and expertise

    What makes European pork stand out?

    • The way the meat is produced:
      over the past decades, a comprehensive consolidation process has taken place in the European slaughtering and boning industry, professionalising all stages of the process: slaughtering, processing and packaging.
    • The service by the Belgian meat suppliers:
      the great strength of the Belgian companies lies in the tailor-made work they offer. They fully adjust their operation to your requirements, leading to a virtually unlimited number of possibilities. The mostly family-owned businesses combine professionalism and expertise to offer a high degree of specialisation. This typical focus and dedication is what truly characterises the Belgian pork suppliers… and what brings the maximum in added value for you.

    Pioneer in Food Safety

    From animal feed to point of sale, Belgium applies the strictest standards for control and traceability. The production and sale of food is supervised by a single organisation: the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC).

    The FASFC has far-reaching authority across the entire Belgian food chain. This unique structure, from feed to food, guarantees traceability across all levels and an exceptionally high level of food safety for the end user.

    5 breeds for your import needs

    Typical Belgian pig

    • Refined crossbreed of Belgian Landrace, Belgian Negative, Piétrain and Belgian Large White
    • High share of lean meat
    • High flesh coverage
    • Stress-resistant

    Although other Belgian pig breeds are rather niche breeds, they are steadily on the rise, claiming their spot as ‘the new pig’.
