Belgian meat now reaches 60 countries around the world

Belgian meat suppliers are considered specialists in the export of pork. With customers in 60 countries, their services are known throughout the world.

Export as a purpose

In terms of pork production, with a self-sufficiency rate of approximately 250%, Belgium produces a lot more meat than it consumes. A conscious choice—export is not a result, but an end in itself. A robust network of small to medium sized enterprises, often genuine family businesses, have specialized in the export of pork over generations.

Solidly anchored in Asia

Approximately two out of every three kilograms of pork produced by the Belgian meat industry are intended for export abroad. The largest buyer is its neighbor Germany, followed by other European countries, including Poland, the Netherlands, UK and Italy. But with customers in 60 countries, the services offered by Belgian suppliers are known throughout the world.

Worldwide regarded specialists

Belgian meat owes its unique position to the people who make up the profession. From breeder, butcher to exporter—all of them are regarded worldwide as true specialists. They are experts who know their customers and who offer customized services.
