“Either we do it properly, or we don’t do it at all”
- This has been the philosophy of Aalbæk Specialiteter since 1920.
With an uncompromising attitude towards quality, we have developed specialties that are out of the ordinary for generations. Always by focusing on the basic ingredients, to refine the taste experience and the good handwork of a butcher. We are passioned about and proud of what we do, and our customers only deserve the best.
The products of Aalbæk Specialiteter lead to enjoyment. Both when it comes to taste and in social gatherings when eating together.

The innovative desire has always been a part of the Aalbæk family, and when Peter Aalbæk joined in 1986, he carried out a new vision. He focused on organic products, which has led to Aalbæk Specialiteter being one of the biggest manufacturers of organic cold cuts in Denmark today.
