Feldhues Group rose from a small, traditional butcher shop in the town of Metelen in Westphalia, Germany. Today, the group consists of two modern plants, with focus placed on the production of special cooked meat products displaying designs.
The first production plant, Feldhues Fleischwarenbetriebe GmbH, was built in Metelen in 1978. Just six years later, the company decided to set up a second plant in the Republic of Ireland - Feldhues GmbH Fleischwarenproduktion in Clones, Co. Monaghan.
At the beginning of 2013, the Feldhues family decided to stop production at the oldest site in Metelen while expanding capacities at the Irish site. The latter site mainly serves the UK and Irish markets and now also produces classic sausage specialities in addition to kids novelty sausage. It also runs state-of-the-art slicing and packaging lines for pre-pack in diverse formats.
In 2004, a completely new manufacturing site was taken into operation in Metelen - Feldhues Fun Foods GmbH. The company focuses on manufacturing character meat products for larger customers, mostly B2B.
