Traceability

Our Farsø plant is one of the world’s most modern cutting systems. Himmerlandskød’s equipment makes it possible to achieve 100% traceability directly, from the animal at the farm to each single cut in the meat counter.

It often happens to our customers that sell Himmerlandskød or have it on their menu, that their customers ask them about the meat, and we know it is important for them to be able to show and tell that their meat is 100% Danish. Buying Danish products has become an important parameter amongst modern consumers, and it is a further advantage to get precise information about the provenance of raw materials. Today, most people want to be sure that animals are raised and transported in proper conditions. There is a demand for meat that has not been produced by a machine, but has been carefully picked, and that is exactly what we do at Himmerlandskød.

Himmerlandskød slaughters cattle and processes meat under strict requirements and rules.

From the time livestock arrive at our slaughterhouses and until the meat leaves our cutting plant in Farsø or Hadsund, all process steps are documented in our HACCP-based self-inspection program.

Employees at Himmerlandskød are continuously trained in hygiene, food defense and food safety culture, so that they can contribute to maintaining a high level of food safety.

Himmerlandskøds partners and suppliers are carefully selected according to established quality parameters, and we evaluate them regularly to ensure that we can maintain our quality standards.

In all processes in production, daily inspections are performed with cleaning, hygiene, and maintenance, which helps to ensure high quality and food safety.

At Himmerlandskød, samples are also taken on an ongoing basis to monitor that quality goals and food safety goals are in control.

Himmerlandskød’s meat is produced according to the highest hygiene standards, and of course it also complies with EU’s food legislation, in every respect.
