About Frigorífico Kroth
This strategic objective aligns with the values of this family business. The history of Frigorífico Kroth begins in 1956. Reinoldo Kroth, father of Hélio and Auri and grandfather to members of the current management, opened a small butcher shop, operated only on weekends, in Venâncio Aires, in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul state. They worked in the crops and slaughtered cattle to supply the family. They began to serve the local community and, later, expanded into the region.
Today, Frigorífico Kroth's operation is national, focusing on Brazil’s southern region, especially in Rio Grande states do Sul and Santa Catarina, with more than 2,000 active customers. The brothers André, Fábio, Luís, and Silvano, sons of Auri Kroth, who is also a part of the company’s management, make up Frigorífico Kroth’s management board.
Frigorífico Kroth works with different cuts, such as the forequarter that offers tasty meat and is highly popular by local consumers. The brand’s most outstanding product is the sirloin cap (Brazilian picanha steak), which does not stay in stock for long thanks to its high standard of premium quality.
The company has SISBI Certification from the Brazilian System of Inspection of Animal Origin Products, which allows the commercialization of the entire national territory. It aims to obtain the SIF Certification (Federal Inspection Service) so that Frigorífico Kroth can export its products in the future.
Kroth's head office is located next to the industrial processing plant on the property that once hosted the family's first butcher shop. It was there that the inauguration plate unveiling of the new plant took place.
