Handlbauer – a safe partner close at hand! As our abattoirs are located in the areas where the pork and beef are produced our transport distances are short. We pay for pigs and cattle supplied by you. Handlbauer is an abattoir certified to IFS. Our standards of hygiene comply with the latest requirements. Furthermore, we place great value on species-appropriate, stress-free slaughter. In addition we ensure complete traceability by using the BOS system for cattle and the SUS system for pigs. The cattle and pigs are assessed by the certified classification service LFL.
