Founded in 1971 as a family-owned business, our core activities are centred on the slaughtering, butchering and processing of pigs, sows and beef cattle.

Τhe company is headquartered in Rheda-Wiedenbrück. Tönnies employs approximately 8,000 people across seven German and one Danish production facility. The Tönnies group is active worldwide, and with 25 international offices, is always closely in touch with the market. Our exports account for about 50% of our production.

The Tönnies’s success story begins with our unique concept of quality and freshness. We achieve sustainable “biological unity” by bringing slaughtering, butchering and packaging together under one roof, thus ensuring maximum product freshness.

Through the use of inline-production, the Tönnies Group produce nationally and internationally recognised quality meats that form the basis for all stages of our downstream meat processing and consumption.

Tönnies Lebensmittel ensures unique freshness and quality:

  • The most modern technologies for slaughtering, butchering, packaging and logistics
  • Unique processes for cleanliness and hygiene
  • An unbroken cooling and hygiene chain through the use of in-line production
  • Continuous monitoring at all stages of production
