We are Schmitz
In 1911, Peter Schmitz Senior founded the Metzgerei Schmitz in Heinsberg-Straeten at the westernmost point of Germany. His children and grandchildren now continue the family tradition in the third generation and over the years have turned the tranquil butcher’s shop into a remarkable enterprise. The values of that time are still lived today: tradition, down-to-earthiness and the unconditional love to freshness and quality.
WE LIVE THE TRADITION
We can look back on over a hundred years of company history.
WE ARE SCHMITZ
Masterly at the butcher’s championship
We exclusively use regional recipes and the artisan preparation is carried out according to traditional butchery methods. The smoking takes place exclusively over 100% natural and certified sustainably produced beech wood shavings. Our sausages and hams are produced only with the highest-quality and fresh raw materials.
“Regional recipes and the traditional butcher’s preparation are what distinguish us from others.”
WE ARE SCHMITZ
Only the best is good enough
The best quality of the ingredients and the traditional processing are Schmitz’s highest duty. This is what our family stands for — for over 100 years. It is understood that independent institutes regularly test all our products. At Schmitz, you can be sure to get nothing but the freshest, best meat. This is a matter of family honour!
Somehow, you can taste the originality, from the delicious smoked sausages, the hearty cooked sausages, the juicy ham and roast. That is why Schmitz products are popular and well known not only on the Rhine, but also throughout the country.
