Our veal chain

PALI Group is globally recognised as a producer of premium veal products. Our added value lies in our partnerships with suppliers, veal farmers, traders and customers. We ensure the veal farmers have dedicated contacts to guide them in the purchase and sales process so that supply and demand are perfectly matched. We also provide support, devise feed schedules if required and handle identification and registration paperwork. Furthermore, we handle the transport, slaughter and processing of veal.

We maintain control throughout this chain, with a focus on quality and respect for people, animals and the environment. Together with our chain partners, we ensure optimal conditions and excellent end results.

Calf purchasing

We purchase unweaned calves on a daily basis. After a strict selection process, we sell them on to veal farms or place them with affiliated veal farmers, who ensure the animals are raised in the best possible conditions.

Veal farming

Our calves are raised on certified veal farms. Some of these farms are owned by us, while others work with us under contract. Independent veal farms can also rely on us for support.

Our cold store

Our cold storage facility in 's-Hertogenbosch has a storage capacity of 45,000 square metres and a freezing capacity of 150 tonnes of meat per day. Freezing takes place immediately after the animal is slaughtered or the meat is processed. Our customers can specify the method used, either tunnel freezing or plate freezing. Products are frozen at very high speed, guaranteeing the meat's quality.

Our tannery

Calf skins and hides are by-products of the slaughtering process. Rather than discard these, we send them to Vitelco Leather, part of PALI Group. Here, they are turned into high-quality calfskin leather, helping us contribute towards a circular chain.
