Lunenburg Vlees and Egbert Kruiswijk Vleesproducten are to officially start trading under the joint name Westfort Meatproducts. We're a little bit sad to be saying goodbye to our old names. We've been using them with pride for many years. But a new direction calls for a new name. We're taking the name Westfort from the slaughterhouse we jointly own in Gorinchem. When we opened the slaughterhouse in 2003, it was an important step towards closer cooperation, which culminated in the merger of our two businesses in 2013. So Westfort is a name that's an homage to the many years we've spent working together, and it's a new symbol for going forward into the future as one.
Westfort is a highly specialised pork meat processing company offering the full range of meat processing services: buying pigs from the farmer, slaughtering, meat processing, producing cold meat products, and delivering meat to butchers, supermarkets, restaurants and cold meat product companies in the Netherlands and far beyond. Because we have short lines and every specialism in house, we're guaranteed to meet your needs, efficiently and safely.
We're an artisanal yet innovative company. We have a rich tradition of working with pork. We're a company that grew out of family businesses, which treasures its history, but also looks to the future. Our intention is to carry on making quality products for many more years to come, so we can ensure that lots of people, both in the Netherlands and abroad, get to enjoy our pork.
Over the years you've probably come to know our specialist product lines. We pride ourselves on anticipating your company's requirements, and those of your customers. So we're always able to provide you with the right products.
