Luiten Food


Founded in 1974, Frigorifico Rioplatense is one of the leading beef processing companies in Argentina. Their focus is on the slaughtering, boning and processing of beef, which enables them to produce a wide range of quality products for customers worldwide.

Rioplatense has one of the most modern beef slaughterhouses in Latin America, located in Buenos Aires, with a processing capacity of 1,800 head per day.

The quality of Frigorifico Rioplatense’s products is guaranteed by selecting from the best Argentine British breeds. The habitat of the animals is incredibly important for the quality of livestock. The location of Argentina with its mild climate, extensive fields and abundant rainfall, provides a perfect place in which to rear high quality livestock.

Through our partnership with Frigorifico Rioplatense, we can offer our customers premium quality Argentine beef with 100% transparency throughout the process.


Frigorifico Rioplatense sees to it that all the cattle processed in its facility come from farms that produce according to the highest standards. They have therefore developed the Rioplatense farm quality assurance scheme.

The Rioplatense farm quality assurance scheme promotes:

  • The highest level of animal traceability;
  • Good animal welfare standards;
  • Good animal health and nutrition;
  • Good management practices.

In addition to its farm quality assurance scheme, Rioplatense has designed and implemented a Quality and Food Safety Management System based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), certified by the British Retail Consortium (BRC).

Thanks to a fully integrated computerised system, customers have full insight into traceability from farm to processing.
