Kuivalihakundi is a company founded by a Finn Timo Lahti in 2016. It operates in Tuusula, Vantaa. In the background is a fishing trip in Lapland, which did not quite live up to expectations. At the evening campfire, jerky was fried and it’s quality was not satisfactory. That’s where the idea of producing own better-quality dried meat came from.
At first, meat was prepared and sold from Timo’s home kitchen. After this, he moved the production to the own small production premises, from which the company has grown into a large player. The company Kuivalihakundi received its first facility approval for dried meat in 2015. Today, dried meat products are available from beef, pig, horse, reindeer, chicken and game.
