The awards are run by the Red Meat Abattoir Association, which is a representative organisation for red meat abattoir owners, and aims to improve the standards of their members and improve the confidence in South African red meat.
Gerhard Neethling, General Manager of the Red Meat Abattoir Association commented regarding Chalmar Beef’s win “The performance of Chalmar Beef over the last years is a tribute to the dedication of this company to maintain and improve the standards of regulatory compliance at this abattoir and deboning plant. In providing training and support services, the Association is proud to assist with the dedicated efforts of the Wethmar family to provide the very best South African beef to our consumers”.
Located in Bapsfontien, Chalmar Beef was started by Wimpie Wethmar in 1969. His children, Willem and Sarah, are proudly maintaining the family-based ethic that has seen Chalmar Beef gain a reputation for premium cuts of tender, juicy and flavourful beef – and win many accolades for the high animal welfare and hygiene standards of its abattoir.
“As a family we are extremely excited about this achievement and passionate about beef production – and have been for over 40 years. We believe that it is through well-managed feedlots and an award-winning abattoir that has turned Chalmar Beef into the first choice for many of South Africa’s leading chefs and an A-list Supplier to Woolworths” said Sarah Wethmar, Director of Chalmar Beef.
Chalmar Beef is served at Chaplin’s Grill and always receive complements as the “best steak in town” from its local and international guests.
