Nematekas - 27 years of justified expectations
„Nematekas“ started its activities in 1994 by selling German-produced meat processing lines NEMATEC. In order to test the equipment in practice, a small demonstration meat processing workshop was set up, producing only 900 kg of meat products per day. Gradually, it grew into a competitive meat processing company. Currently, „Nematekas“ prepares more than 80 tons of meat products every day and continues to strive for growth with the highest quality standards. Youthful energy, maximalism and will allowed to become a solid company recognized not only by Lithuania, but also by the foreign market. In October 2019, „Nematekas” welcomed a honorable 25th anniversary. However, according to the company’s managers, it is worth to celebrate for everyone: not only the determination of the team members helped to overcome the challenges, but also the constant encouragement of product users to improve.
“Innovation and development are very important in our company, so we always strive to create something new, better and most importantly – healthier.”
