Since the company was founded in 1967, we have accumulated a wealth of experience and cultivated the traditions of poultry farming and production. We are the only full-cycle production company in the field of poultry farming and chicken meat production. Our strength is not only technological competence, but also our employees including engineers, food technologists, poultry farmers, laboratory assistants and logistics specialists who make us the leading company in the industry.
Our experience, leadership and continuous search for new innovations in the field of chicken meat production allows us to state that we know more about cooking, the harmony of flavours and serving chicken meat than anyone else in the Baltics. We know that several generations of children love our sausages and frankfurters. We know that a chicken shashlik is the fragrance of Latvian summer evenings, while in winter, a proper party would be unimaginable without Ķekava’s smoked delicacies.
Our process of poultry farming and meat production complies with the requirements of legislation of the Republic of Latvia and regulations of the European Union. The company has adopted a certified food safety management system complaint with the international standard ISO 22000:2005. The food safety management systems assists the company in ensuring a systematic approach to identifying, assessing and managing food safety risks; it includes the assessment of all processes from the point of view of the product’s safety, starting from the bird breeding process, acquisition of tested and approved raw materials and strict supervision of the production process through to the quality assurance of the ready product. The certified system inspires trust on the part of customers and consumers that our products distributed and sold by us are manufactured, in compliance with strict quality assurance requirements, thus, yet again reaffirming our care for our products’ consumers and ensuring that the buyer receives not only quality products, but ones that are safe for consumption. All chicken meat is 100% free of salmonella. In February 2015, PF Ķekava’s fresh chicken meat was awarded the “Green Spoon” trademark.
