Guenter Lotzmann and Martin Gedja, two hardworking immigrants to Canada, had a vision of opening a meat processing plant together back in 1975. The two friends knew they had a winning formula for a successful business. Guenters’ skill as a butcher plus Martins’ ability to sell products were the key to driving business.
Martin and Guenter worked hard selling their products at various markets throughout Kitchener-Waterloo, even selling from the back of their trucks to help fuel their business. People were impressed with the products that Guenter and Martin were producing, and they soon began to respond to the high quality and great taste that the two were producing. Martin and Guenter nurtured their dream during these early days, watching it grow roots and become the business that it is today.
The Lotzmann family still owns and operates Finest Sausage and Meat, which is still located at 268 Trillium Drive in Kitchener. The plant has changed and grown over time, but the hard work and attention to detail have not. Since 1975, we have grown and changed in response to industry demands, purchasing more sophisticated machinery and employing more people. Despite our growth, our basic principles have not changed: we want to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations every time. Since 1975, from our family to yours.
