Chad Van Groningen

The Butcher & Master of Processing

Chad Van Groningen

Chad is the second born son who mastered the skills of butchering from, in his words, “the best teacher I know, my father”. “My father’s hard work and determination inspired me to keep with the family tradition and help take it into the future. My role in the business includes managing the daily plant operations and ensuring that our product is the very best for our all consumers”.

In addition to leading butchery and plant operations, Chad is also part of the company outreach & sales team. He responds to customer inquiries, meets with local businesses and creates opportunities for VG Meats to grow and better serve hungry Ontarians. With a thorough knowledge of his work and what VG is all about, Chad excels at working with like-minded companies and business owners to create productive customer relationships. Chad and his wife Nicole have two young meat-loving boys who love visiting the family farms and learning about the family business.
