Our business idea is based around a concept of taking care of and refining our product as close to the source as possible. The results of this concept are high quality products. It also enables us to continuously refine and deliver speciality- , as well as delicacy products from Northern Sweden.
We have a long-term strategic plan to make use of all details from our slaughter and cutting facility. Today we use over 95% of all meat cuts and waste details produced.
We are wholesale distributers of reindeer and moose products and through the years we have built a wide customer base. We deliver our products to small retailers as well as larger production facilities and wholesale distributers.
Our own store is located right next to our production facilities. We sell a wide variety of pre-packaged goods such as, smoked and dried reindeer and moose products. We also provide other regional products; Arctic char, Blueberries, Lingonberries and Cloudberries. You can also find a selection of souvenirs and Sami handicrafts. Among others, “Makilas” tin embroidery.
Arvidsjaur Renslakt AB was founded in 1992 by four Sami villages, Mausjar, Udtja as well as Western and Eastern Kikkejaure.
From the very beginning we realised that the best way to take care of the meat was as close to the source as possible. So we bought a mobile slaughterhouse and a truck with two cooling containers.
We leased facilities for slaughter and industrial freezers for storing, but soon realised we needed facilities of our own.
In 1994 we built our own facility in Larstorps Industrial Area in Arvidsjaur, right on the reindeer pastures. This enabled the construction of an animal-friendly and calming paddock for the reindeers being brought in for slaughter.
In the fall of 2005 our facilities was expanded to our current modern and EU-approved slaughterhouse. During the later years we have had an addition of three new Sami villages, Baste, Girjas and Gällivare skogssameby.
