Our Chalmar Beef on site farm abattoir complex – completed in 2002 – is the most recently built grade A beef abattoir in South Africa.
We are the only company in South Africa to exclusively harvest cattle from our own feedlot.
The planning of the complex was an international effort with experts in the abattoir, de-boning and cooling industries brought to South Africa to consult us every step of the way.This effort has been rewarded with Chalmar Beef consistently winning the prestigious Gauteng Abattoir of the Year competition for 11 years.
The facility, which took 5 years to complete, is made up of various departments; namely the abattoir, rough offal and hides , red offal, wholesale, de-boning and processing all under one roof, allowing us to take full custody of the cold chain and ensuring that it is never broken. Every department has its own finger print system so that there is no cross contamination between people from the various departments.
