About us

The rich German tradition of master butchers, known as Fleischermeisters is a centuries-old practice rooted in preparing, curing and cutting of the finest of meats. Skilled artisans pass down specialised techniques and recipes from generation to generation. At Hartlief, we honour this tradition by employing dedicated Fleischermeisters who use time-honoured techniques to produce the highest quality meats. This legacy is reflected in the delicious taste of our products.

Why Hartlief

The name Hartlief is synonymous with uncompromising quality and culinary delight. For our customers (local, national and international), indulging in Hartlief's range of products isn't just a choice – it's a way of life. This is because Hartlief brings forth the best quality meat that money can buy. At Hartlief, we deeply value the legacy and skill of our Fleischermeisters, who are steeped in culinary tradition, enabling them to create the highest quality meat products with great pride.

Inspired by traditional German and EU methods, Hartlief maintains the highest standards, resulting in meats that are nothing short of exceptional. Our commitment to quality is unwavering and our legacy is reflected in the delicious taste of our products.

Quality & Ageing

For more than seven decades, Hartlief has remained steadfast in its commitment to delivering quality meat products that stand the test of time. The processes that have brought us success haven’t changed as we continue to produce premium meats in the same way we always have.

One of Hartlief's distinguishing factors is its mastery of aging, or "ripening," of meat. This natural process enhances the flavour and tenderness of the meats, making the culinary experience truly exceptional. The muscle in beef and other meats undergoes gradual changes that contribute to the tenderness of the final cooked product.
