Best quality with our ‘Biological Unit’
The Tönnies success story starts with a unique quality and freshness concept. With the sustainable ‘Biological Unit’ for slaughtering, butchering and packaging under one roof, this philosophy brings maximum product freshness. The ‘inline’-produced quality meat from the Tönnies Group is a concept on which all downstream processing stages and consumption stages are based, both nationally and internationally.
The key to freshness and quality assurance is the integrated and fully documented inline production under one roof. The entire value creation chain, from slaughter to finishing to packaged product, takes place at one site. Amongst other benefits, this ensures continuous quality control and guarantees an uninterrupted refrigeration and hygiene line.
With over 40 years of experience and maximum technological performance, Tönnies has made a quantum leap in quality meat preparation with the introduction of fully automatic butchering. Butchering, finishing and packaging according to the requirements of our trading partners and the end consumer are part of our core business. We master this task like no one else, as our customers confirm time and again. Customers around the world benefit from our knowledge and specific solutions and work with us in a cooperative relationship for many years.
Unique principle of quality and freshness
The business unit Meat is split into Pork and Beef. Due to the different production locations and the individual requirements for the slaughter, butchering and processing of pork and beef, the business unit Meat was separated into specialised business unit in 2018.
The Tönnies principle has a major influence on the process steps and the quality of products produced in the two business units. The basis is a unique concept of quality and freshness. With the sustainable Biological Unit for slaughtering, butchering and packaging pork under one roof, Tönnies achieves maximum product freshness.
As a fully owned subsidiary of the TÖNNIES Group, we consider ourselves to be a partner of agriculture: with our focus on the sale, trade and transport of live animals for slaughter and production, we oversee the entire value-creation process from start to finish. We value the loyalty of our farmers and, together with our fattening companies and producers, we always act in our cooperative, transparent and sustainable manner.
