J.A. ter Maten Pluimveebedrijf B.V.

A company with a history since 1962!

In 1962, Jan ter Maten Sr. founded a number of marketplaces to sell fresh chicken products with which he laid the foundation for the family business we know today. In 1970, the business and the locations further expanded by the opening of a poulterer’s shop in Jan ter Maten Senior’s hometown Bunschoten-Spakenburg, which marked the establishment of the family business.

Not much later, in 1980, the first part of the production site on the industrial estate De Kronkels was realized, where the processing of chicken by-products into semi-finished products for the pet food industry started. In 1998, this location expanded and the processing of by-products and the production of separated meat for the snack industry began. In 2015, a new cold store, head office and production location were realized in Haarburg-Zuid in Bunschoten-Spakenburg.

The current management is formed by the sons of the founder (Wouter ter Maten and Willem ter Maten), who own the family business today. J.A. ter Maten Pluimveebedrijf B.V. distinguishes itself by supplying products of high quality, being flexible and by its customer-friendliness.

Production process

The manufacturing process of J.A. ter Maten Pluimveebedrijf B.V. starts with the delivery of fresh, chilled poultry parts by leading suppliers. After receiving- and quality control, the products are processed with advanced equipment into a range of high-quality poultry (meat) products.

During the processing process, meat and by-products are separated and the end product is freshly delivered the same day, or immediately frozen and ready for the customer.

The processing of products differs per application. MDM is produced by separating the meat from carcasses and backs using high pressure. Processing the products under high pressure results in an end-product that has less structure and is often used when the structure is not important to the end product.

Baader meat is produced by separating the meat from fillets /and or v-bones under low pressure so that the structure of the meat remains intact.

With the manufacturing processes, J.A. ter Maten Pluimveebedrijf B.V. guarantees quality, specification, texture and taste. This by means of equipment with attention to quality (such as Near Infrared), measurements, metal detectors, inspection systems and checkweighers. Together with this modern equipment, quick processing and flexibility, J.A. ter Maten Pluimveebedrijf B.V. can offer stable high quality to its customers.

Quality and Sustainability

In order to guarantee the high quality, J.A. ter Maten Pluimveebedrijf B.V. had its own quality service, supported by independent start laboratories, to check the quality criteria. This way, all raw materials and end products are examined bacteriologically and the end products are continuously chemically monitored using the Near Infrared (NIR) assay that almost continuously yields measurement data. This allows customers of ter Maten to count on the guaranteed quality.
