In 1975, two hardworking immigrants named Guenter Lotzmann and Martin Gedja had a vision of opening a meat processing plant together. With Guenters’ skill at being a butcher and Martins’ ability to sell product and drive business, the two friends felt they had a winning formula for a successful business.

Martin and Guenter worked hard selling their products from the various markets around Kitchener-Waterloo and even sold their products out of the back of their trucks to help fuel their business. People were happy with the products Guenter and Martin were making and soon people began responding to the high quality and great taste the two were producing. It was in these early days that Martin and Guenter fostered their dream and watch it grow roots and become the business that it is today.

Today Finest Sausage and Meat is owned and operated by the Lotzmann family and is still located at 268 Trillium Drive in Kitchener. The plant has grown and changed over the years, but the hard work and attention to details have not. Since 1975 we have grown and changed with industry needs purchasing more sophisticated machinery and hiring more employees. Although we have grown, our basic principals remain the same; we want to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations every time. From our family to yours since 1975.
