A mushroom farm is now installed at Abattoir, in the basements of the old listed market hall. The production of 'shiitake' is one of the specilialities of a starter company called 'Le Champignon de Bruxelles'. Mister Sevan Holemans, one of the leadsman of Le Champignon de Bruxelles, took time to guide a team of VRT, the Flemish TV-station in Belgium. Take a look behind the scenes and watch the movie that was broadcast yesterday in prime time at TV-news. Click here !

Just like FEBEV we are condemning firmly the animal abuse that was recently shown on film at the Tielt abattoir. Abbattoir SA is fully prepared to have cameras installed in their slaughterhouses, for as long as the privacy legislation is not endangered. We do have cameras on our site already, registering the unloading of the animals. The images are carefully monitored by our people. If necessary, we can intervene and ask respect from the transporters. Cameras inside the slaughterhouses should result in complete transparency, while obviously protecting the slaughters’ privacy. You can read the full FEBEV press release here.
The Barattoir and Ketmet openers were a huge success. More than 300 kids showed up under the shelter of our covered market place to live some fantastic moments together. Many thanks to our Cultrureghem partners who worked themselves to the bone to turn our market hall into a huge playing ground/attraction park, a “free-entrance-one”, for sure! Never heard of “Playboxes”? No kidding! Then you surely must come and have a look, with or without your children.
