Our meat's ORIGIN
The majority of our meat for the production of fresh and frozen meat is obtained from Austrian abattoirs. So the animals are slaughtered in Austria, and the meat is subsequently further processed by us in Styria.
We assume that around 80-90% of the animals come from Austria.
Not all the animals that are slaughtered in Austria come from Austria. For example, they can also include Hungarian animals. Unfortunately, we receive no information from the abattoirs as to the origin of the animals, as that would be too complex. We obtain Category 3 material (parts of slaughtered animals, which are fit for human consumption) and if, for example, an abattoir slaughters a number of cows from different suppliers, the leftovers are not separated out specially for us.
We also obtain organic meat, but unfortunately this is also not labelled for us by the abattoirs. So it may well be the case that our products contain organic meat.
We obtain the organic products (organic turkey stomachs, organic poultry chips, organic poultry snacks, organic poultry sausages) from a poultry slaughterhouse in Carinthia, so we do not produce these organic dried treats ourselves.
