Zandvliet Vleeswaren is an independent family business. From its start as a simple butcher's shop in 1929, the company has developed into a cutting-edge production company providing meat products for the traditional butcher's shop, the meat industry and the retail market.

Family business

In 1929, Martinus Zandvliet founded a butcher's and pork specialist’s shop Zandvliet Vleeswaren in The Hague, the Netherlands. In 1948, his two sons Loek and Jan joined the company. The company quickly grew into a well-known meat manufacturer. 

Removal and expansion

Still maintaining his butcher's shop and wholesale business in The Hague, Zandvliet also moved into state-of-the art business premises in Leiden. Continuing growth enabled the company to move into newly built premises at a Delft industrial park. This location was extended in 1974 and 1991.

Rebuilding the premises

In June 1998, the company premises on Faradayweg in Delft burnt down completely. Joining forces with its customers, business relations and colleagues, Zandvliet managed to keep up its regular production rate and immediately started constructing a new building, which was completed on March 24, 2000.

Three distinct production companies

Loek Zandvliet is the current Director at Zandvliet. He is the grandson of its founder and runs Zandvliet, which is now comprised of three separate production companies:

  • a sausage production company
  • a meal component production company
  • a meat cutting company
