the world's best
LANGLEY, BC, Jan. 26 /CNW/ - Freybe Gourmet Foods has once again proved
to the world that their fine deli meat products are some of the best in
the world, beating out hundreds of traditional European meat producers.
The BC-based sixth-generation producer of gourmet deli meats has struck
gold once again with 22 gold and two silver medals at the 18th
International Competition for Meats and Sausages held in Wels, Austria.
Freybe Gourmet Foods competed with 109 other companies from eight
different countries where more than 1,300 products were tested and
judged for quality. Passionate about their meats and driven to excel
and innovate in the industry, Freybe submitted a total of 24 products,
all of which were awarded medals. In its 167-year history, Freybe has
garnered more than 700 international awards and accolades, including
448 international gold medals for its products.

commitment to producing the world's highest quality products. It is an
absolute honour for us to have our work and products recognized by the

really set the standard for us to compete in European competitions to
prove our products still maintain traditional European standards. We're
proud of our legacy, history of excellence and great tasting meat
products that have earned us respect and trust amongst our customers."

Freybe in Stettin, Germany, Freybe Gourmet Foods is recognized as an
