The two passionate founders initially experimented in the back of a restaurant kitchen before opening a “factory” of just more that 60m² with a dream of making a great product. The ideal product had to be of exceptional quality, with not too much fat, but still full of flavour and marinated to perfection in a delicious sauce.

It had to guarantee tenderness, requiring nothing more than a few minutes of grilling to get that authentic steakhouse taste. Over the course of almost 30 years, the combined efforts of these industry mavericks and various professionals from the restaurant, hotel and food service industry paid off when “the perfect rib” became a reality.
