Best Star Meat supplies pork to other Van Loon Group businesses and to industrial customers. In addition, in its role of certifi ed supply chain manager for the Beter Leven (better life) quality label, it maintains all our contacts with the livestock farmers who are contracted to Best Star Meat.
Best Star Meat fulfills the role of supply chain manager within Van Loon Group. Since February 2019, we have been a Beter Leven quality mark certified supply chain manager. We exclusively process pork from our own supply chain with a one-star Beter Leven quality mark as a minimum. We went a step futher by starting the innovative supply chain concept Varken op z’n Best (Pig at its Best). Using this innovative supply chain concept for pork, we are raising the quality of our pork and making the supply chain transparent, sustainable and controllable.
Passion for our trade
Best Star Meat is passionate about working with meat. Every day, we work together in a tightly-knit team to provide our customers with the best raw materials.
Pork Print Tool
In 2021 we launched the Pork Print Tool in collaboration with HAS University of Applied Sciences. Van Loon Group uses this tool to monitor the carbon footprint of our pork production businesses. The carbon footprint indicates the amount of greenhouse gasses produced for each kilo of pork, from birth to slaughter. The total footprint from birth to slaughter has been mapped for 38 pig producers.
