The strength of family!


We take responsibility for providing a wide range of valuable proteins. We are convinced that the variety of protein products will be essential for the nutrition of the future.

We want to be the most efficient supplier of meat and plant-based products. That is our vision.

Thanks to our many years of expertise and our constantly growing range, we see ourselves as a solution provider for the challenges of our time. Our high-quality and popular products from The Family Butchers have made us Germany's second largest sausage manufacturer. We are not satisfied with this, but are driving our product portfolio forward in all areas and strive to place a special focus on new reasons for food consumption, sustainability and higher animal welfare standards in order to establish new benchmarks in the field of sausage and ham production. As an important part of the InFamily Foods-Group, people and their needs are always at the center of our work. A deep understanding of consumer needs and innovation leadership in our product range make us a driving force in the sector and an important partner for industry and trade. Our constant striving for improvement and compliance with demanding environmental and social standards characterize our daily actions and give our employees security. This is how we achieve our mission: Best Proteins For You.

Kemper & Reinert – the foundation of a powerful family! 

It takes greatness and courage to play a decisive role in shaping a market. But each alone is not enough. It's a question of skill: creative ideas and technical know-how. Bringing together two companies as different as Kemper and Reinert was the logical consequence for us.

Brand savvy sausage innovators meet product specialists and traditional craftsmen. As Kemper and Reinert, we are well-known and reliable players in the market, as well as family-owned and operated with the same values we’ve shared for generations. For years, we’ve always been grappling with the same questions: what will consumers want in the future? How can we produce our products more sustainably? How do we create more added value and appreciation for the entire value chain in the sausage and ham market?

We have both drawn the same conclusion from the global developments and crises in the meat and sausage markets: Only together can we meet the challenges. As a family. Because that is our unifying, entrepreneurial spirit. This is the attitude of The Family Butchers.

We believe in the solid foundation of entrepreneurial traditions and in the inspiring power of trust-based cooperation. We are and remain passionate butchers and dedicate our craftsmanship to contemporary and forward-looking sausage enjoyment.
