Who We Are
Established in 1996, Meatworld International, Inc. is a formidable player in the country’s meat market. It is one of the largest meat retailers in the Philippines, supplying and operating over 460 supermarket outlets through concession arrangements of meat products as well as distribution of seafoods. It operates the Mrs. Garcia’s Meats and Farm Fresh brands, as well as supermarket house brands in 21 supermarket chains all over Luzon and several in Visayas. Likewise, it distributes exclusively in Luzon, Sarangani Bay, a well-known seafood brand in the country. It is a preferred supplier to over 100 wholesale or key accounts (i.e. restaurants, hotels, canteens, and meat shops) for customized meat requirements.
The company is also engaged in the fabrication and processing of meats, packing and distribution. It manages a production or meat-cutting facility where it fabricates meats into special consumer cuts for distribution to supermarkets and wholesale accounts.
In 2018, the group of businessman Martin Lorenzo acquired a majority stake in Meatworld through First Lucky Holdings Corp. (FLHC). Martin's successful track record for acquiring, managing, and creating added value in diverse business ventures complements the strengths of the company.
Run by a core team (pictured above) with deep knowledge and skill on meat related products and services, Meatworld is currently poised for growth, outperforming itself in the past years since Martin's acquisition.
The company employs over 1,000 butchers and merchandisers as retail operators. The workforce is very skilled in butchery and experts in fabrication and transformation of meats. It is trained to transform carcasses to primals, and primals to consumer cuts with optimum yield and minimum wastage, with the perceptiveness for balancing demand cuts, non-demand cuts, commodity products and by-products.
