International food and beverage trading

WERNER HANDLE GMBH is an Austrian based Food Trading Company founded in 1996. Our company is successfully working in the international agriculture industry, our core business being exporting pork, beef and poultry meat from Europe.

While today, over 20 years later, traditional meat trading and brokerage in CEE is still our core business, we were always determined to broaden our horizon. Thus, over the years we explored the export of organic and healthy food, wine, alimentary products and food technology.

This wide range of experience in different sectors made life interesting and sharpened our skills with success.

Since 2015 we additionally provide the Asian market with PREMIUM BEER FROM AUSTRIA. Today, we are the distribution partner of the biggest brewing company in Austria, Brau Union Österreich AG, for the Peoples Republic of China. Brau Union Österreich AG is market leader in the Austrian beer category and a member of the Heineken company.

Meat Export

Our network enables us to deliver raw meat for industrial purposes at competitive terms from every exporting country in the world. Product requirements are constantly adopted and developed in cooperation with customers and suppliers. For our suppliers it is generally common to work under International Food Standards like ISO and IFS. Beef (HALAL), Poultry (HALAL), lamb and innards as well as pork, chilled and frozen, are the main articles.

Over a period of two decades, we have built up a considerably large international network of major, reliable suppliers in the field of pork, beef and poultry.

Thanks to our loyal clients we are able to source from six of the ten biggest pork slaughterers in the world, the biggest chicken processor in Germany and move meat from all over the world.

Meat in any form for every market!

Trust for Trust - A mutual benefit

Long term partnerships & success

Mutual understanding, cooperation and good will are the very core of our business strategy. In our opinion and especially in a fast moving, globalized business environment, establishing long term relationships is of highest importance – not only for today’s success, but even more so for the days to come.

These values also represent our people strategy within our own company. As a consulting and service oriented trading company, we can only be successful if we enable our employees to live up to their potential. We value the partnership with every single one of our employees above all.

Since 1989 the markets in EEC opened up more and more thanks to EU and the Soviet Union´s peaceful withdrawal of their army from our neighbor countries. Politics have always influenced and changed the lives of many foreign-trade specialists like us, making us constantly move forward and re-invent ourselves. Thus, our company has learned to adapt flexibly to a new environment.
