High-quality meat products

Meat products produced by Zandvliet Vleeswaren are of the highest quality. We use only fresh ingredients, which requires maximum care.

Total Quality Management

Food safety is central to our company. In order to guarantee the highest safety standards, Total Quality Management plays a major role in our day-to-day operations, and we strictly adhere to our Environment, Health and Safety guidelines. Our process management system is based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), and includes the following:

  • Inventorying and assessing all potential hazards;
  • Assessing the risks related to these hazards;
  • Determining whether these risks are critical and, if so, taking risk management measures; and
  • measuring and documenting risk management measures.

The expiration date and letter code on our packaging, for example, enables us to trace when and how the product was produced.

Legal requirements and liabilities

Government requirements have become increasingly strict over the past decades. At the same time, there has been an increase in corporate liability measures. This created the need for a uniform standard that would guarantee both food quality and safety.


Two standards were stipulated, which have by now become internationally accepted industry standards:

  1. The British Retail Consortium (BRC)
  2. The International Food Standard (IFS)

Zandvliet locations comply with these two standards to the highest possible level, which means we

  • Strictly monitor our ingredients on a daily basis,
  • Provide weekly samples of our products for external lab tests, and 
  • Test our products both during and after the production process.
