The largest meat producer in Western Austria
With location in Salzburg, ALPENRIND has made a name for itself since 2007 as a partner in regional agriculture and with consumers.

In addition to 130 of its own employees in Salzburg, service companies employ about 200 more staff.
ALPENRIND is part of OSI EUROPE FOODWORKS GmbH, an American family company founded in 1919 with more than 20,000 employees worldwide.

Highest food quality and safety
The processes and products of ALPENRIND GmbH are subject to the strictest quality standards, compliance with which is regularly reviewed by internal and independent controls. A label gives the processing operation information on the relevant piece of meat (origin, customer, etc.) at all times. Internal staff and external institutions regularly conduct audits. Veterinarians and animal welfare officers commissioned by Alpenrind constantly control procedures, animals and products. The high standards are proven by a number of quality labels.
Securing company locations: investing in a new refrigerated warehouse
The company will make a considerable investment to secure its locations. Many millions of Euros have been invested in the expansion and modernization of locations, for instance, the construction of an ultramodern refrigerated warehouse with high-bay storage in Salzburg, which has been operational since May 2013.
