Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Vion, one of the largest meat companies in the country, will only make vegetarian products at its slaughterhouse in Leeuwarden [in Friesland province]. The company wants to respond to the increasing demand for meat substitutes.

In the slaughterhouse in Leeuwarden, beef products were made, but from next spring on, only vegetarian schnitzels and sausages will have to roll off the line.


Vion already made vegetarian products in Groenlo, but that location has become too small.

With the conversion of the slaughterhouse in Leeuwarden, Vion hopes to profit from the growth in the number of so-called flexitarians; people who deliberately do not eat meat for a few days a week.

Meat companies in Holten and Enschede, eg, have previously decided to become (partially) vegetarian.
