Farm assurance

The quality of Rioplatense’s products is guaranteed by selecting from the best Argentine British breeds.

Located in a country with mild climate, extensive fields and abundant rainfall, it provides a perfect place in which to rear high quality livestock.

Rioplatense ensures that all livestock processed at its plant comes from farms producing with the highest standards.

We work very closely with selected farmers in developing 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

Online information

Our online system records automatically in real time the total result of the slaughtering operations performed. Information is processed and exhibited at the disposal of farm producers, cattle brokers, and end-users of the slaughtering operations in our online slaughter data base, or a copy of the carcass grade data may be forwarded by mail.

You can contact our Department of Cattle Purchase to sign up for the online query service.



At Rioplatense, beef slaughtering, deboning and processing remain our core business producing a wide range of quality products for our customers worldwide.

Our plant located in the province of Buenos Aires is one of the most modern cattle slaughtering facilities in Latin America. Over the years, Rioplatense has been expanding and improving its plant and will continue to do so in the future.

As our customer requirements have evolved and the demand for centrally packed meat products has increased, Rioplatense has responded by investing in state of the art retail-packing facilities, significantly increasing our production capability.

Our capabilities include MAP, vacuum packing, thermoform packing and skin packing.

Our Retail packing division features five lines with the latest technology available in packaging, labelling and slicing. Our fresh meat ranges of beef are carefully prepared by our team of butchers, cut and sliced into a range of portion sizes, then packed to ensure freshness for the final consumer.

Quality and
food safety


On-line monitoring in real-time. With a fully integrated computerized system implemented throughout the kill floor and boning room, traceability is achieved from farm to primal cuts.

This information is summarized in a database located in our website. By loading a tracking number our clients are able to monitor the whole process online, from the outset to the finished products.

This information allows tracking the following :
• Shipping details
• Product cut classification
• Slaughtering, production and expiration date
• Identification of carcass grade and bleed
• Location of the farm origin


Rioplatense believes that Quality and Safety of its products is key to producing reliable, and consistent quality beef.

It has therefore designed and implemented a Quality and Food Safety Management System based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) as a fundamental tool to ensure the safety of our products, certified by the British Retail Consortium (BRC).

The experience and training of its human resources, the permanent updating of its facilities and equipment, and the maintenance of high standards of hygiene are the framework of the Quality and Food Safety Management System.

Rioplatense is approved for export to the most demanding markets such as the United States, and the European Union, as well as other countries with sanitary agreement with Argentina.

Quality programs

Food safety starts with our strong supplier-approval programs. These food safety programs make Rioplatense one of the top beef manufacturers in Argentina. We are committed to maintaining a strong leadership position in Food Safety and will continue to develop innovations that protect our customers.

Specific programs, such as the Certified Argentine Angus Beef Program (CAAB), Rioplatense special selection Black Box program or Cabaña Rioplatense Grain Fed program are also carried out to meet tailor-made customer market requirements.
