INNOVATION THAT MATTERS

IN EVERY AREA

INNOVATION IS DONE TOGETHER

Innovation can mean a lot of things. When do you say that something is innovative? We believe that innovation comes down to developing products that add value to our clients or the world at large. Innovation can arise from an on-going development programme or be pursued in response to an entirely new phenomenon. You can innovate on all sorts of levels. Basically, innovation isn’t something that’s done overnight. Fortunately, when you team up with Jan Zandbergen Group, you will have a true innovator on your side. Allow us to explain why.

SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION

Our years of experience in the market, expertise in a variety of fields, contributions to third-party research and in-house R&D department allow us to come up with solid, long-term solutions.

WHAT

STRONG BRANDS, BETTER PRODUCTS AND
SMART SOLUTIONS

We rely on the right resources and capacity to realise new products, concepts and brands. Tailored and innovative solutions that represent substantial added value.

CATERING TO TOMORROW’S NEEDS

WHY WE INNOVATE:

  • To keep up with a constantly changing market. That’s why we keep a sharp eye on new trends and needs – to ensure that we stay relevant to future demand.
  • To act today on what the customer needs tomorrow.
  • To consistently supply the right products – anytime, anywhere. Clients are interested in added value like convenience and higher product quality. In addition, we can see a significant shift in demand from animal to plant proteins.
  • One of our core values is taking responsibility. We don’t just do this within the chain; we also extend this value to encompass people, society and our environment.

SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION

How we innovate:

  • We have over 65 years of experience – and know all the ins and outs of the butchery business. This wealth of knowledge allows us to develop sustainable, tasty convenience concepts and meat alternatives and safeguard the quality of our products.
  • Based on current trends and client needs, our experts from a variety of backgrounds work in-house on the development of new and exciting products and concepts. This allows us to effectively cater to our clients’ needs and add considerable value.
  • We work together with other parties in various research projects and knowledge centres. We are located in the heart of the Dutch Food Valley and can tap into a strong network of partners for collaboration and innovation.
  • We have an extensive network of suppliers, whom we rely on for sourcing everything from ingredients to specialised packaging.
  • We make products for a wide variety of target groups – and enjoy a large international network of clients as a result. We work together with these clients in partner programmes that are geared to developing the perfect solution for their specific needs.
  • We operate our own production locations and R&D department – enabling us to also put innovations on the market under our own brands.
  • We carefully determine how to best market our products via data research, quality studies and market trend analyses.

STRONG BRANDS, BETTER PRODUCTS AND SMART SOLUTIONS

WHERE WE INNOVATE:

  • We work together with the client on the development of high-value brands and concepts that are effectively geared towards specific target audiences.
  • We market products that lead the way when it comes to capitalising on the latest trends and development, and above all cater to the demands of tomorrow.
  • We continuously improve products and work on smart solutions to ensure they retain their value.
  • We produce products that in terms of flavour, structure and ‘bite’ more than satisfy consumers’ expectations of a good meat substitute.

We always go the extra mile – to take all your concerns off your hands.

Jan Zandbergen Group - The Meatlovers - Jonathan Zandbergen

THE MEATLOVERS

The Meatlovers’ product range puts restaurant-quality meat in everyone’s reach. To ensure that we can offer the highest quality meat, we consciously limit ourselves to certain breeds and feeding programmes. The meat is immediately portioned, packed and deep-frozen at our location to pause ageing at the optimum moment. This also decreases spoilage, allowing commercial clients to build up a good stockpile. We have a broad selection of products, in which we tailor our offer depending on seasons. A perfect product range for true meat "lovers".
