Tell me, what kind of company is Ganda?
“Ganda Ham has its origins in the 1950s, when Roger Cornelis and his wife Maria Mattheeuws founded a butcher’s shop in Wetteren. Sixty years later, the company grew into a modern production company, which produces 2,200 Ganda Hams every week. We are a company with about 60 employees.”
Where is Ganda Ham produced?
“Our ham is produced in Destelbergen near Ghent.”
How did the Ganda Ham come about?
“The Ganda Ham has been produced since 1954. The tradition is now being continued by the third generation.”
Why are you so proud of the Ganda Ham?

The only ingredients we use are the ham itself and a minimum of salt and time. This makes the product natural and unique. We do not use preservatives, nitrites, flavorings or colorings. 90% of our raw materials come from our immediate environment.”
Who are the main buyers of the ham?
“These are the consumers who buy the ham in butchers and shops.”
Why should readers vote for you?
