The Art of European Beef

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, beef specialist in Europe

    Why choose European beef by the Belgian meat suppliers?

    Belgium is the ideal location to produce beef, thanks to its temperate climate (favourable to meat production) and its strategic location (straight in the heart of Europe). Based on these pillars, the Belgian meat suppliers have built up an extensive tradition in the export of beef.

    “The Belgian meat suppliers: a strong network of specialised experts who know their customers, and who guarantee a tailor-made service.”

    Tailor-made quality, thanks to professionalism and expertise

    What makes European beef stand out?

    • The beef’s intrinsic quality:
      8 breeds for your import needs
    • The way the meat is produced:
      over the past two 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 beef 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.
