Today starts the Belgian Meat Office Round Table
With its characteristic waterways and rich culinary tradition, Ghent is a perfect location for an interesting programme about the Belgian meat sector. This traditional meeting will start with a visit of Corma NV, which produces the Famous Ganda ham following ancient Flemish tradition and artisanship, and referring with its name to the place of origin: Ghent. Ganda ham it is available as whole hams, but the company also offers an extensive range of pre-packaged products such as smoked ham, Angus Beef and Mangalica ham. During the visit the guests will have the pleasure of meeting Liesbet Pluym, who will introduce Meesterlyck – the quality label for Belgian ham. Meesterlyck has been the hallmark for quality cooked ham and dried ham since 1992 and is known for its authenticity, honesty and purity. The Meesterlyck label has become a trusted symbol for pure and above all tasty ham . Meesterlyck ham must meet the strictest quality requirements and is checked throughout the entire production process.
