About us

Who are we?

Johan and his wife Ria created the QualitY House Johan & Ria in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Andries in Uccle.

Johan grew up in his parents’ farm in Dixmude. During his youngest, he discovered the taste of a smooth meat and good for well-being. At 18 years, and after 6 years at the butchery college, Johan decided to come to Brussel.

He’ll further his knowledge by Brussels famous butchery and meat butchery, for instance Keurslager Walter. He will work with Ria in a famed meat butchery in Uccle: Andries. This is where they learnt the home-made delicatessen and the worth of the quality from the products they’re selling.

Proud of all their experiences, Johan and Ria start their own meat butchery in 1992. They became real fast as famous as the biggest butchery in Brussel thanks to the home-made delicatessen, the catering and most of all the meat coming from the farm of the Johan’s parents.

During 2006, Johan and Ria decided to resume the meat butchery where they learn everything they knew: Andries. They start to reduce the production costs and they could keep the affordability for a bigger customer base.

The meat butchery Johan & Ria and Andries are maybe not the cheaper, but they are one of the best places in Brussel.

beef johan en ria

Beef and veal are coming from the Johan’s parent’s farm in Dixmude, West Flanders, not far from North Sea. Feed with fresh fodders and cereals, the cattle enjoy the fresh air from the sea side. They’re raised without antibiotics or growth hormones. This is how we guarantee a tender meat with an intense taste.

Pork johan en ria

The BRASVAR pork is raised in East Flanders, in a little farm in Nevele. Pork are raised on a respectful and organic way. That’s the point for this juicy and tasty meat. Johan wanted to find back a meat with a true-born taste, the one he used to get when he was younger. That’s what he found in this special piggery. www.BRASVAR.be for all the charcuterie of the house and our meat.
